Sandy Stolzman redefines contemporary third-world travel photography by purposefully transcending above the stereotyped role of Bacardí rum-drinking and sandy toed White tourist with a camera slung across her neck, and the results are obvious. With a wily media and with curated social accounts that love to romanticize Cuba, Stolzman is able to keenly perceive through her lens what is objectively beautiful- and what is objectively sad -about the island.
"When I reflect on the terms 'liberty' and 'freedom', I think of how I've learned so much from social media, which I have unlimited access to, and how I became vocal through it. In this country, we have the ability to be vocal. I had the ability to educate people with my voice. And the fact that it was so easy to organize in my school, and that the City government let me rally in front of their buildings... I can do all of those things because of liberty and freedom, but it's also about having the right to fighting for rights being taken away. It's ironic like that." - Olivia Sandom
