Frederic Vanwalleghem – La vida preciosa

La vida preciosa refers to the isolated and unique way of life I found Cubans to have… of course with it’s flaws concerning personal freedom but away from capitalistic forces that would make this society and its people less social-minded and more individualistic. The images are not intended to tell a story as a whole, but are small stories separately and documents of encounters and places I visited.” Frederic Vanwalleghem
