I had no idea this existed here in Cuba and I was very happy, they welcomed me in as a friend and I kept coming back. I came back seven more times and fell in love with Cuba and this is a celebration for the people, for the artists."

A US photographer who was granted unusual access to Cuba's social elite opened an exhibition of his work on Friday night in Havana.
Michael Dweck has photographed the likes of Camilo Guevara and Alex Castro-Soto del Valle, the sons of Ernesto "Che" Guevara and Fidel Castro respectively, among other members of Cuba's social and showbiz elite.
Dweck, an award winning photographer who lives in New York, said he first travelled to Cuba seven years ago and fell in love with the country.
"I was invited to a party and was welcomed into a farandula (showbusiness set) and for me it was a big secret. I had no idea this existed here in Cuba and I was very happy, they welcomed me in as a friend and I kept coming back," Dweck said.
Alex Castro-Soto del Valle and Camilo Guevara, who have had limited exposure in the Cuban media, let Dweck take pictures of them relaxing at their homes, playing cards and drinking with their friends.
Besides this rare access to their private lives, Dweck was also granted permission to exhibit his work at the island's most important photography institution, the National Photographic Library. Both Castro-Soto del Valle and Guevara are also photographers in their own right.
"I think he captured my essence and the essence of the Cuban people," Castro-Soto del Valle said at the opening of the exhibition.
The party was a social event not to be missed for Cuba's creative class: a large crowd of artists, writers, filmmakers and models attended.
Alex Castro-Soto del Valle is one of five children Fidel Castro had with his second wife, Dalia Soto del Valle.
He is his father's official photographer.
