“As a historian, I am drawn to the sedimentary quality of private lives, public spaces, and political and cultural institutions. The collection of photographs, … represents my attempt to capture the geological layers of Cuba’s built environment, while conveying the dynamism and exhuberance of its social life,” said Hansen, a lecturer and senior faculty associate at the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies at Harvard. 

The Gallery hours are Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, 1 p.m. to 4.
