Cuba Street Photographer

March 2016

Havana – Santa Clara – Trinidad – Cienfuegos – Havana

CubaStreetPhotographer 16 ASEI love the unexpected nature of the streets. Going out and photographing, not knowing what lies around the corner. Surprises, opportunities, serendipity, stillness .. Life. There is always something. Walking around in Cuba, it was hard not to see the beauty in the most simplest of things.

At the start of our trip, I was too much in my own head. Trying too hard to make images work, worrying about composition, framing, lighting, movement, contrast .. everything. As soon as I let go, enjoyed being in the moment, things started to click.

I walked and felt so much clarity in the thoughtlessness of walking around. Just smiling, being with people and the streets and then the photos just happened.

Trips like this are refreshing. I get to spend time with my thoughts, meditate in full awe of this amazing planet we live on. I need these trips each year .. It was India a few years ago, Myanmar last year and this year, Cuba.

Here is a preview and a few of my favourite images from 2 weeks in a land of so much colour and beauty.

Thank you Cuba.
