On display in the Balcony Gallery for Florida Artists, this solo exhibition highlights the Gainesville-based artist’s journeys through his lenses following graduation from the University of Florida.
Born in in Ybor City, Florida, Batista spent part of his childhood on the family farm in Oriente, the easternmost province of Cuba. A wide-ranging array of black-and-white photographs chronicle Batista’s life stories in the Sunshine State and Cuba.
