Work and Play
Cuba is a place of hard work, flirtation, and blurred lines. Cuban emigrants commonly succeed once they are outside the confines of modern Cuba's limitations. Shot in May and June of 2013, I wanted to show the incredible and ceaseless hard work that goes into keeping the Cuban machine running, as well as the uniquely Cuban ability to approach even the most mundane task with a bit of levity. Sometimes, it can be hard for an outsider like me to tell when work ends and play begins, but my interest in the trabajadores of Cuba brought me some enlightening conversation with some of the people who must be among the planet's most interesting, entertaining and hardworking folks.
