La Habana, Cuba

My second visit to Dreamland and I now understand how Artists visiting that place can find it nearly impossible to return home for months or years. My first visit in 2014 is part of an exhibition, that body of work can be found here.

In conversations about Cuba with the Humans born and raised there that I met during my daily wanderings, one thing was abundantly clear... "it's complicated."
