VEILED WOMAN IN HAVANA, CUBA

CUBAN WOMAN_0002A woman wearing an ornate veil poses for her portrait at the studio of Ramon Carreras in Havana, Cuba. Hopefully a visitor to the cabinet card gallery can leave a comment about the subject's attire. What does the woman's clothing tell us about her? Research yielded little information about the photographer of this cabinet card. The Encyclopedia of Nineteenth Century Photography (2007) states that the war between Cuba and Spain (1895-1898) was documented by a number of photographers including Carreras.
