Hello.

I am an international travel and documentary photographer, driven by the desire to tell the stories of the people I meet and the places I visit through the photographs I capture, all over the world.

The people of Havana know how to look after their cars. They have to. With Cuba economically cut off from the rest of the world since the late 1950s, the vehicles on the road today are precisely the same cars which were on the road, way back then.

In a country where hardly anyone has driven a new car, the people have learned to maintained and repair the cars they do have meticulously. Spare parts don't exist, so new parts by fabricated by eye, as vehicle owners find ever more ingenious ways to keep their engines running.

Above all, though, the people of Havana seem to take pride in their cars. They clean them, polish them, and appreciate them in ways we have long forgotten.

We have become so accustomed to our modern conveniences of life; we completely take them for granted. But in Cuba, people know what it means to value the things they have. Perhaps that is a lesson we could all do with learning.
