An island unto itself.
On the brink of its 50th anniversary, Cuba remains fiercely independent in the face of continued American hostility and international isolation. A land of contradictions, Cuba combines incredibly sophisticated and progressive social infrastructure with a troubled economy and political uncertainty.
Cuba's firebrand leader and international symbol of defiance, Fidel Castro, is thought to be in his final days and the future of Cuba is very much unknown. Will it remain an island unto itself or will it become a Caribbean Disneyworld? These photographs make up a portfolio of images of what may be the final days of Castro's Cuba. They will serve as a reference for me as I return to Cuba over the next few years to record its imminent transition.
