To whom it may concern.

Are you interested in getting more clients ordering expensive holidays in Cuba?
Organize an exhibition about this beautiful country!

I know there is a general lack of information and material about Cuba
that is necessary to attract potntial yet hesitant customers. I would like to
present the beauty of this picturesque country through the eyes of not just an
artist but as a simple human being.

My idea is to organize an exhibition in your country promoting Cuba as
a travel destination. Since Cuba is not the most typical holiday
choice it needs unusual marketing strategies. In addition to the
exhibition I will be able to provide photo material for your
brochures or advertisements as well. From modern day life to historical documentaries -
photos and film.

I am looking forward to our cooperation.

Best regards,

whom it may concern,

my name is Andrej Palacko. I am a professional photographer whose work has mainly focused

My idea is to provide my photos and award winning documentaries and documentaries yet to
be seen for mutual media promotion. My further plan is to cooperate with travel agenices
and the Cuban embassy which I already have a close relationship with.

As one of very few people I was granted all access to the tribune for the last public
speech of Fidel Castro on May 1st, 2006. I am most recently recognized for my documentary
film about the three time Cuban Olympic boxing champion Teofilo Stevenson (Eight Days
Before He Died) released at 2012 Milan International FICTS Fest.

I would like to propose the idea of organizing unique exhibitions together. I can also
provide my already existing material or create new photos upon request. We could
copoperate on documentries about tourism, Cuban cigars and a complete documentary about
