A vacation to Cuba nearly turned into an international award for Sturgeon Bay photographer and author Tom Jordan. His latest book, “One Week in Cuba,” was named a finalist for the 2019 International Book Awards in the photography category. A retired advertising executive, Jordan was able to compete on the same level as professional photographers from Thailand, Switzerland, New York, and Phoenix. The recognition was humbling for Jordan, who says it is challenging to layout a photography book.
Jordan says his favorite subjects he shot during his trip were the Cuban dancers because of the candid pictures he was able to produce. His two books about Sturgeon Bay also received similar recognition in the past.
