I was invited to visit Cuba by Pregones PRTT + Consejo Artístico de Puerto Rico to experience Cuba’s land and culture.

As a photographer, my main goal was to well, photograph.

I had always felt compelled to visit Cuba because for years, I studied its golden light through photographs. I set journey yearning to find that particular light, but during my time there, what I got were dark clouds, pouring rain, super cold weather, and the 2019 tornado! 

I felt a bit disappointed, but I tried to make do. I didn’t leave Habana until I found pockets of light (although sometimes artificial) which fulfilled my expectations. I learned to work with what I had, and that above all, patience is key to making photographs, and anything really.
