Photographer Mimi Fuenzalida Captures Cuban Imagination

Mimi Fuenzalida was born in Santiago and spent her early years in Chile and Argentina. At 13, she was given a 35 mm camera. Learning to develop her own film she discovered a passion for capturing images. In her early twenties, she relocated to Los Angeles and today is married to Ken Rosen, a film producer who recently concluded a successful fundraising campaign on Kickstarter.  The campaign funds will be used to complete his film, Cuba in Transition.
