“Mi Gente,” Leonor Anthony
This piece is part of the collection “El Vuelo de la Semilla (The Flight of the Seed).” It is inspired by my personal experience as a Cuban immigrant. Having left Cuba as a 5-year-old child, my roots were severed but not erased. These are my people. They are textured, nuanced, worn out, real—but filled with life and soul; simple in their elegance and beauty. This is my homage to them.
