Cuba // 35mm Film

I've been sitting on these images for a month, because I'm not entirely sure how to sum up my experience in Cuba. It's a country full of contradiction: filthy yet beautiful, peaceful but frustrating, simple yet terribly disorganized. Daily tasks and travel logistics take three times as long to complete. The people are some of the nicest in the world, but no two will give you the same answer to even the simplest question. It's easily the most difficult country I've traveled through, but at the same time I'm so thankful I saw it like this. It's changing so quickly (tourism doubled in the last year), but if you get there soon you can still catch a glimpse of an untouched country.
