According to Cerávolo, in the exhibition is evidenced the concern of artists for social causes, the need of the denunciation, for the degraded aesthetics of urban centers and its also noticed, the new means of production of the image.

Look at Me is also, a continuation of the exhibition The Cuban Revolutionary Epic, carried out in Brazil in June 2006 and which presented to the most excellent photographic artists in the Island: Alberto Díaz-Korda, Raúl Corrales, Liborio Noval, Perfecto Romero, Osvaldo, and Roberto Salas.

"Now, we want to show Cubans the Brazilian contemporary reality through our most talented professionals. Its a cultural and artistic exchange between two nations of paramount relevance in the historical background of Latin America", asserted Joao Kulcsár, curator of the exhibition and SENAC professor.

The Brazilian nation and its rich culture invites us to look at it through the lens and sensibility of its artists, in the most important collection in images of that country ever exhibited in ten years in Cuba.
