Model + Farmer, Guanabacoa, Cuba, 2016


Thanks to Alejandro Godinez we found this incredible space, and so much more in this small village. It so happens to be where his son also lives, and he is somewhat of a star in the area after this summer's worth of models visiting with us!

In this image is the timeless Patricia, someone who has collaborated with us in the past and continues to do so without reservation. She always greets me over the phone with a gentleness and always accepts our invitation to be photographed. We documented her on this day in Yudel's magnificent creations, the supremely gifted clothing designer in the beautiful city of Havana.

While we were making this image a local man was working in the field behind Patricia. As he moved we moved, so as to include him in the images. She happened to notice that and without turning around spoke with him in a sweet way, prompting him to stop and allow us to photograph in this spot for a few more seconds.

She was and is something else, and I for one look forward to documenting more of her next summer!
