Cuban Stories in photographs

by Angel Gil, Helena Smith and Claire Boobbyer

Three photographers come together to celebrate and explore life in Cuba, from its resilient, creative people to its painted propaganda, crumbling architecture and vibrant street life.

Angel explores the relationship between people and place. We follow twenty seven year-old Michel Palacio Colina as he discovers a passion for rearing and training messenger pigeons for racing and finds his peace within the hustle and bustle of Cuban life.

Helena’s black and white images capture the Cuba of 2009, 50 years on from the Revolution, with reportage-style portraits and cinematic street scenes.

Claire recently made a 5000-kilometre road trip round Cuba in the process capturing striking propaganda images that adorn walls, billboards, workplaces and roadside hoardings across the cities and fields. Claire’s new book, Frommer’s Cuba day by day has just been released.

    There’s no such thing as a “Revolucción” that lasts 50 years.

    Dogmatic fascist robolucion with free healthcare that you get from 100% taxation.

    And even the free health care is deteriorating quickly. Except for the priviliged - and tourists - it’s never been that good anyway, simply because of lack of equipment and supplies. (The US bloqueo of course, - Europe doesn’t manufacture pharmaceuticals.) A doctor round every corner does not make a good health care system.
