She has dedicated her life to the visual arts, her greatest passion. ‘Rhythms of a new open Cuba’ is a visual narrative of Cuba today. She spent three months travelling around the island staying with locals and sharing experiences with them. An evocative photographic project on the changing face of Cuba reflected in its people and culture. Capturing locals going through their day to day routines, Raquel explores how the changing landscape of Cuban customs and politics affects ordinary individuals.

This series of portraits is about the changes that these island peoples are going through and the repercussions of these changes in their lives. A series of photographs about contemporary Cuba revealing a personal experience about discovery; lived, danced and learned from an unique culture. Through close relationships with her subjects, Raquel manages to give an accurate picture of the complexities of everyday Cuban life. Raquel’s work highlights her interest in using photography to capture her subjects’ emotion. She develops genuine relationships with real people over time, which makes them comfortable enough for Raquel to take staged portraits.

She holds an MA in Fine Art Photography at London College of Communication (University of the Arts (London)) and won the commendation and additional showcase for Photoworks, and a feature as 2017 next generation of artists by Aesthetica magazine.In 2010 she graduated from the University of Westminster with a Bachelor of Arts in Contemporary Media Practice.
