Shadows in the light of Cuba (2017) Havana, Cuba
Cuba is a land of contrast, contradiction, solidarity, surrealism, music, passion... It's people have an outstanding strength to fight for themselves and their freedom, and have suffered strongly from the blockade that the United States of America have imposed over it's people. Fifty years of socialism has rendered the country with and undoubtable autonomy and equality, and the Cuban people are extremely educated and cultured. Since the 90s however, with the fall of the Soviet Union, Cuba has often struggled to support all it's people with basic needs, given the aggressive blockade of the USA and the trade restriction with the rest of the world. The sense of constant fight is reflected all around Cuba and it's people. Cuba is raw, diverse, loud...an island of light and shadows.
