Raw Rough & Vibrant
Cuba has always fascinated me, hypnotized me – a place of worn-down buildings, tired streets, and broken sidewalks shimmering under the raw sun and heavy step of life. The more time I spent in Havana, the more I was drawn in by the Cuban people and their way of life. They captured my imagination – and over time, my heart.
I cannot get enough of Cuba.
With this collection I seek to capture the mystique and allure of Havana, as well as its unrefined coarseness. Each photographic artwork is rough and textured, indicating a world of shattered dreams and promises. Brittle and fragile to the touch, like a dried tobacco leaf ready to fall apart at any moment. Each image shot against a background of latent energy and vibrancy, dreams and hope.
