It is impossible to understand the real poverty and austerity Cubans live with every day. Most Cubans in Havana find it impossible to live from ration to ration issued by the government. Unemployment is a way of life, and those fortunate enough to have jobs rarely earn more than 30 dollars a month. Many are forced into jobs way beneath their skills. It is not uncommon to find doctors, lawyers, and other professionals driving taxis and working in physically laborious jobs. And yet the Cubans remain resilient. They are hospitable, open-minded, and eager to engage in conversation about their fates. This exhibit contains photographs I shot in Havana in 2009 with friends I have made over the years. It is in respect of their bravery and faith I offer them to the public.
