Ballerina + Brother, Santa Maria del Mar, Cuba, Summer of 2013


…and a familiar face along with that of her oldest brother, a recent medical school graduate. For the first time her brothers asked me to make their portraits, each on their own and with their younger sister. The love between these three siblings is clearly palpable in person and hopefully through this portrait.

This image was made on the beach, on an overcast day. We used 400 ISO film and exposed perhaps four or so rolls of medium format film. It will be my sincerest pleasure to hand these images to them in three months, and to receive their reactions.

Note: This portrait was made by a Hasselblad 555 ELD/180 mm combination, on location at Santa Maria del Mar just outside of La Habana, Cuba.
