Havana Museum

January 24, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Havana is an interesting city and a great place to photograph. What caught my attention and continued to draw my interest were the contrasts. I've lived in Latin America several years now and great contrasts and disparities are everywhere, but there was something unique about Havana.

The below image was made in the Havana Museum. In one of the upper floors, there are a few rooms with statues. This image caught my eye because we have an elegant statue in a museum looking out onto a scene of people hanging laundry on the balcony of what was once probably a very upscale home. It's an interesting visual allegory of the wealth divide.
