The Magnificent One + Sugar Cane Field, Guanabacoa, Cuba, Summer of 2014


Essentially perfect she is, without need for further description. The reality however is that few outside of the island know her, yet she blesses us with her gift through these images. In this series she moves from one expression to another in a matter of seconds in an effortless manner. This is her sixth year with me, and in six months she will once again appear in front of my camera to perform.
Last summer she would have come with us every single day given the chance, and at least 100 rolls of film were dedicated to her alone over my two month stay. From the beaches of Santa Maria del Mar to my friend's farm, we worked together to produce a series of images most remarkable due to her talent, mind and heart.
Note: These exposures were made with a Hasselblad 555 ELD/180 mm combination onto Fuji Neopan Acros 100 ISO film.
