Friend + Beach, Santa Maria del Mar, Cuba, Summer of 2013


During last year's visit to Cuba my plan was to photograph only the one known to me. Then one day two of her friends happened to be hanging outside of her building and showed interest in the photography. One was on the fence and told me that perhaps her boyfriend would disapprove. My answer to her was somewhat like this: while I wish you nothing but success with your boyfriend, at least the images we will make today will last a lifetime. She ran inside, gathered her things and off we went.

This was one of her friends, and I look forward to documenting all three of them once again this summer.
