• Calle Ocho #060 - Limited Edition of 25

    $385.00Price

    After the Castro revolution of the late 1950s a flood of Cuban refugees landed in Miami and settled in a neighborhood just west of downtown Miami.

    They created a vibrant community and the name “Little Havana” emerged in the 1960s.

     

    Little Havana is famous as the cultural and political capital of Cuban Americans, and the neighborhood is still a center of the Cuban exile community.

     

    In 2017 the National Trust for Historic Preservation declared the neighborhood a national treasure.

     

    This series is a celebration of this unique area. The colours, the characters, the ambiance from my point of view, an outsider. This image is a composite of several different images taken in the same session and manipulated in post production. Elements have been added and subtracted from the scene in an attempt to control what cannot normally be controlled. The idea is to let the environment speak for itself without too much of the clutter of real life.

     

    From an ongoing series.
