Winter Solstice/Winter Solace
Winter Solstice/Winter Solace
2010

The two brothers depicted in this collage represent the thousands of parents who sent their children away from Cuba through Operation Peter Pan (Operación Pédro Pan). This project, carried out by the CIA, safely transported over 14,000 Cuban children to orphanages and other group facilities in the United States between 1960 and 1962. One former Peter Pan child says he was most shocked by the changing of the seasons in America and how particularly lonely the unfamiliar winter felt.
