Cuban Stories

Collectively, these images examine the situation in Cuba at the turn of the century, late in Fidel’s tenure, in all of its deep ambiguity. My work involved a range of exploration: in part artistic, journalistic and sociological. By then, the majority of the population had been born after the Revolution and to those under 40, Fidel was a fixture who’d simply always been there. The considerable seductions of Castro’s voice and persona had begun to fade, with increasingly scant connection to everyday lives and concerns.
