cuba is this incredibly complex and vibrant island. as an american, cuba was hands off to so many travelers. and as much as we were kept off their island, cubans were kept on the island, experiencing their own difficulties and challenges. so as doors were opened and americans flooded the country, more colorful visuals would surface across the globe. when i went down in the winter of 2017, i wanted to capture the beauty of the country in black and white, allowing you to still witness the colorfulness that the people of cuba possess, even with the absence of color.
