Cuba 2011 will be the story of a deep and involving emotion, resulting from a recent trip (January 2011) round that island.
Cuba and her people are now near facing a post-Castro reality. They all know the situation is pending and hope for better times. However that may be, the State is always affecting and controlling their everyday life strongly and deeply.
The book is divided into three series, all of them having “people” as their main subjects.
In the first one, Hasta la victoria siempre!, I focused - with a certain tinge of irony - on the living and working conditions of people, sometimes suffering a decorous poverty, or even degradation. The present government being mostly responsible, there is little doubt about it, of their state.
In the second part, entitled En el camino de Cuba, “roads and vehicles” seem to be the subjects, but Cubans are actually the protagonists of my shots: once again men and women moving around by all means of transport, often basic and inadequate, in a condition of never-ending insecurity.
In the last one, Un paseo por Cuba, the people of Cuba show themselves to be cheerful and sunny, ready to smile despite everything.
