Havana, Cuba, February 2016.

Life flows in the streets of the Cuban capital among decadent colonial buildings, old American cars from the 50s, son melodies that can be heard along the Malecón, young and old playing dominoes outdoors.

Despite the slow changes the country has been experiencing over the past few years, the calendar of history seems to have stopped in Havana. Walking through the streets of this city, one is overwhelmed by an imperfect beauty and by the radiance of the people, but also by a thin veil of melancholy.

“Blanca y negra” is composed of a series of scenes of daily life captured in early 2016 in the streets of the neighborhoods of Habana Vieja, Centro Habana, Cayo Hueso. Snapshots in black and white, like the skin of the people who inhabit this Caribbean island and like la revolución, with its lights and shadows.

A Cuba suspended in time, linked to a past made up of conquests and illusions, but in hopeful expectation of a future still full of unknowns.
