My latest trip to my favorite island was to help a longtime friend. No, not a Cuban, but an American-Cuban, Robert Ortiz. Robert and I have known each other for 15 years. We are both photographers. Robert operates a successful wedding and family portrait business. I dabble in everything except business.
Robert made a commitment to find the father he had not seen in decades. He knew his father lived in Havana, was not in great health, and was at least 82 years old. I was asked if I could help. I must say, it was an honor to accompany Robert and document his reunion.
