Maine Media Gallery’s “Cuban Footsteps,” an exhibition featuring never-before shown work of 20 professional and amateur photographers from their journey to Cuba, is on view through Sept. 3. A reception with some of the artists will be held Tuesday, Aug. 16, at 8:30 p.m. at the gallery, 18 Central St.

In December 2014, just weeks before President Barack Obama normalized relations with Cuba, a group of professional and amateur photographers travelled there to retrace the steps of legendary documentary photographer Walker Evans. “Cuban Footsteps” is representative of their journey, offering a reinterpretation of Evans’ iconic 1930s images at a new historical tipping point. The exhibition ranges from black and white portraiture to sweeping and vibrant city views, as each photographer worked to capture Cuba’s distinct cultural and geographic landscape.

“Cuban Footsteps” includes photographs by Sam Abell, Fred Blum, Kip Brundage, Reid Callanan, Matt Cronin, Jorge Gavilondo, Rob Gensler, Greg Gorman, Cig Harvey, Alain Jaramillo, David Julian, Skip Klein, Mark Klett, Liudmila & Nelson, Jose Marti, Abelardo Morell, Keron Psillas, Kevin Sweeney and Kari Wehrs. The exhibition will travel to Maine Media’s Portland gallery, PhoPa, in September.

Maine Media Gallery hours are weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.; and by appointment.
