Cuban photographer Julio Larramendi showed a collection of his work Monday night at Flagler College in St. Augustine.
Ana Lourdes Soto, director of a Havana group called Heritage, Community and Environment, and Magda Resik, communication director for Havana's Office of the Historian, also gave presentations.
