      WARNING: The following will make you want to go to Cuba, immediately

      Photographing Cuba was one of the easiest gigs I’ve ever had. This gorgeous country is like a well-trained model, effortlessly showing off her best bits… Only in a grungy, dirty, derelict way. The dirtiness is what makes her so beautiful and such an interesting country to capture. The following is a collection of my favourite black and white snaps taken from all over Cuba, showcasing the relaxed, anything-goes Cuban way of life.
