Young Dancer + Truck + Horse, Guanabacoa, Cuba, 2015



We were reunited with the truck from last year, and the horses from the neighborhood a few weeks ago. She had changed so much since last year and has grown up into an incredible dancer, even more incredible in front of the lens.

The neighborhood is just outside of La Habana, but might as well be hours away. The homes and the people are quite different, more like the countryside than the city. Photographing in the area is quite special, as my friend's son lives in the neighborhood. When we see a spot, or a truck, we ask permission and are granted such immediately.

The girls love this spot, and making photographs of dance quite different than the norm… rather than the theater. They get to perform to a different audience, and the people in the area get to see a performance in their own backyard!
