Havana is really like nowhere else. It may be a long story of highs and lows which has brought the city and its inhabitants to this point in time, but there is a pride and a depth of culture in its people and in its buildings.

Some streets appear close to disintegration, but still seem to stand proudly, bolstered by the grandeur of history and strengthened by the fortitude of its residents.

I fell in love with the city and wanted so show the rawness of its streets, rather than the groomed icons of tourism.
