A glimpse of Cuba
Project info

Cuba used to be a beautiful and rich nation. Its name is derived from the Taino language "coabana", meaning "fertile land", "good place". But in the past few decades, the economic blockade had hindered the development of the country. It was not until 2014 when US President Barack Obama shook hands with Cuban State Council Chairman Raul Castro at the memorial ceremony of Mandela, South Africa’s first black President, that the country started a new chapter. In addition to the world's top cigars, advanced health care and free education, Cuba is also known for two people, Fidel Castro and Ernesto Guevara. The series were photographed in the capital city of Cuba, Havana, showing the leisure, collected and peaceful life of the citizens.
