The Face of Cuba
The Face of Cuba: I photographed this little girl in a small fishing village outside of Baracoa, Cuba. She was standing in a dimly lit doorway as her grandfather entertained us with his classical guitar. I love the natural lighting on this one, and of course she’s just as cute as a bug. The fingers in front of her mouth disguise the fact that she had just crammed a bunch of chocolate into her mouth.
