Beginning with the Pope's historic visit in 1998 through Carnivale in 2000 I made six extended, self-financed trips to Cuba to document daily life.
With a film grant from Kodak - 2,000 rolls of Kodachrome - and a freelance photojournalist visa from The Village Voice, I photographed the Pope, the Castro brothers, teen prostitutes, dancers, mechanics, artists, athletes, fishermen, farmers, Ernest Hemingway's Captain, members of the Buena Vista Social Club.
I documented Saturday night keg parties, martyrs on their way to a leper colony, psychiatric hospitals and the first legal Christmas midnight mass in 40 years.
I traveled the length and breadth of the country many times, capturing Cuban life along the way.
My book of the resulting images contains 87 color photographs.
