The images for this piece were taken from original family photographs and documents, then collaged digitally. The words are from my great-grandfather's eulogy in the Cuban newspaper in 1953. It reads "his response could not have been more eloquent: 'My love for this land is not born from a piece of paper; it was born and I carry it inside of me because it's placed itself in my heart. My life, my house, my Clara [his wife], my children, everything that motivates and runs through my veins like blood, is a fervent love for Cuba."
