A note from Cheri: I visited Cuba in the Spring of 2012. It’s a place I’d always wanted to visit. My dad took a trip there in 1954, and I recall viewing his slides from his travels. The pictures and his stories captured my imagination.
Years later, my trip wasn’t disappointing. Yes. The Cuban government limited my access to certain areas. The conditions in Havana certainly had changed. The splendor of an exotic and thriving country of the 1950s was now in disrepair. Yet, I still managed to see and photograph a beautiful, stunning, and joyous people.
The splendor of the buildings was now a mass of wires, ropes, and string holding things together. Despite the patchwork and decay, the people were beautiful. As the city decayed, the people themselves became the diamonds: red lipstick, neon lights, and the smooth sound of jazz. Despite the oppression, the resiliency of the Cubans is undeniable. The people of Cuba are filled with inner joy. That is what I celebrate in this picture. The royalty of the past is now seen in the dignity of the fruit seller, the bicycle man waiting to deliver sheetrock, the secret smile of the flower lady, and the rhythm in the bodega.
My father had visited Havana the young ingénue; the city I saw was an old lady who hadn’t cared for herself over the years. That was the reality. What hadn’t changed was the beauty and joy of the people.
And the cars? They tell their own story.
