Cuba's colors, culture and landscape attracts photographers, photojournalists and photography workshops from around the world. Do you fit into any of these buckets?

Photos of Cuba’s cars, buildings and people are pretty cliche. With good reason; they’re colorful, beautiful and full of attributes that photographers gravitate to. You’ll find a story to tell almost anywhere you point your camera. When you get deeper into the island, you find photographs that tell the deeper tales of the island’s history, a mix of beauty and struggle at constant battle. Imagery is everywhere.

So, it goes without saying – or at least we think it does – that a large majority of you (our readers) are either photographers or are interested in photography at some level. Is that true? Are we right to assume that you’re a photographer, an iphone photo ninja, or perhaps just interested in improving your photography skills in general?

We’ll share the results of this poll in our weekly newsletter. (All responses are anonymous.)

Hola todo el mundo. Sometimes our stories are sourced from multiple people on our team. Or, we like to keep you guessing... You know... anonymous. And, for that, soy el escritora; "El Equipo." We exist to amplify the voices of writers, photographers, and content creators in the space between the United States and Cuba, and we also feature stories from Puerto Rico, Latin America, and the Latinx community in the US. Topics of interest are personality-driven and include pop culture and music, featured current events, climate and the environment, and travel and tastemakers. Oh, and of course we're always 100% independent. No governments, businesses or other influencing factors play a role in our work.
