The Peerless One, Santa Maria de la Playa, Cuba, Summer of 2013

This was our first day at the beach and our collaboration has never been the same afterwards. The first three days from last summer were just scanned and over 100 images of her alone were produced. Any of these images can be printed for my portfolio and make me proud. Here is just one example, and she is as perfect now as the day we met almost six years ago in Central Havana, Cuba.

Her family trusts us to the point that she comes along with me and Alejandro on her own. She needs really nothing to motivate her, is up before the sun rises, ready by the time we arrive at 6:30 in the morning and spends the day with us like she would spend the day with her friends. She is both carefree and extremely driven.

I will visit Cuba as long as she is there. 

Note: This image was made with a Hasselblad, 555 ELD/180mm combination onto Fuji Neopan Acros 100 ISO film.
