When I look back on my time in Havana, I will definitely remember the range of eccentric classic cars, the lovely people in the streets, who are always dancing and singing, and generally the great atmosphere which makes the city feel like a place entirely out of this world. But what will certainly stay with me are the beautiful colours; the way the pastels complement each other across neighbouring facades, and how the vibrant shades blend in an artful expression of the city’s character. Here is a look through my lens as I try to capture the most beautiful sights in Havana.
