Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information

Scope and Contents

This series contains contact sheets, approximately 600 black-and-white negatives, 8x10" and 11x14" prints, notebooks, interview transcriptions, travel guides, maps, and clippings from Steltzer's trips to Cuba and Trinidad in 1998 and 1999. Photographs show street culture, dancing, and live music in Havana, Guanabacoa, Regla, and Pinar del Río. Although images from this series never culminated in a published book, interview transcriptions and research notes imply that a book project was in the works. Materials suggest that Steltzer made two trips to Cuba in January of 1998 and 1999. Some materials were labeled with only the month and date, in which case, notebooks were used to assign years to undated materials. When the year was unclear, 1998-1999 was supplied as a date range.

Folders include contact sheets and negatives with interspersed prints, unless otherwise noted. Several containers of prints are located at the end of the series.
