Leica Gallery Boston Showcases “A Step Beyond | 26.5N, 77.8W” from Photographer Eileen McCarney Muldoon
Compelling Exhibit Offers Inside Look at Life in Havana, Cuba

December 19, 2016 – Leica Gallery Boston is proud to present “A Step Beyond | 26.5N, 77.8W,” an exhibit from fine arts photographer Eileen McCarney Muldoon highlighting daily life in the city of Havana, Cuba. The collection will debut on January 5, 2016 with an opening reception from 6-9pm, and be available for public viewing from January 5 – March 5, 2016.

26.5N, 77.8W denotes the latitude and longitude of Cuba, setting the location for the collection. These photos are the result of McCarney Muldoon’s experiences traveling within Cuba for the past five years, co-teaching photography workshops to fellow enthusiasts on the island. Through these personal encounters, she has captured the homes, lives, and fervent hospitality of the Cuban people and their culture.  Her passion shines through in her honest and revealing photographs. 
This exhibit is McCarney Muldoon’s first at Leica Gallery Boston.  Living and working in Jamestown, RI, her photographic style has been described as painterly, but she prefers to attribute it to her vision of the world, expressed through the photographic expression.

McCarney Muldoon’s work has also been exhibited at Newport Art Museum, The Providence Art Club, Mystic Arts Center and numerous galleries throughout New England and New York. Most recently, she was accepted to the Fine Art & Documentary Photography Show in Berlin for Women Photographers 2016.

“A Step Beyond | 26.5N, 77.8W” will be showing from January 5 through March 5 at Leica Gallery Boston, with an opening reception and meet-and-greet on January 6 from 6-9p.m. For more information, visit www.leicagalleryboston.com.
