This chair says all there is to say about life in Cuba. This is not a throw away society. This chair has been with its owners over several generations, mended and repainted as necessary. It is a chair for sitting outside one’s house and watching the world go by while chatting with one’s neighbours. The Cuban culture of make do and mend has developed over more than five decades of waiting for that good life which was promised by the Revolution but which is still to materialise.
I have visited Cuba fifteen times and I never tire of using my camera to create striking images showing this time warp of a country and the life of its resourceful, determined and entirely delightful people.
The term giclée mans that this print has been produced on a professional printer, using archival inks and textured art paper, giving, with sensible care, a projected life of over eighty years.
You will receive this print carefully rolled in a postal tube. You will need to have it mounted and framed in order to hang it on your wall.
