Cuba Today: Why to Go, What to Know with Dan Segal
Join Dan Segal on Thursday, March 16th at 7:00pm at the Lansing Community Library as he shares his personal photographs that show a day in the life of the Cuban people.
Dan Segal’s perspective on Cuba is based on five visits there, and on the friendships he has cultivated on those trips. It’s based on hundreds of conversations with those friends and their families living in Cuba, and on realistic, first-hand observations from those experiences. *Note: This is not a political presentation.
This presentation of all-original photos will mostly bypass the glamorous imagery found on travel websites. It will zoom in on the day to day life of Cuban people in Havana, and in rural outlying towns – small business endeavors, agriculture, the school day, families at home, infrastructure, etc. – illustrating some very positive aspects of life in Cuba along with the ongoing struggles.

Dan Segal is a local business owner (The Plantsmen Nursery). He and his wife Sarah have raised their family here and continue to enjoy Lansing and the local community more every year. Dan’s photography was mostly plant-related until his first visit to Cuba in 2017. Since then, he has been drawn in by Cuba’s warm and friendly people, and his photography focuses mostly on people engaged in daily life and work – looking for similarities and common emotions shared by all people. These photos are primarily from his 5th trip to Cuba in January 2023
