havana in black and white logo







Traveling in Havana is like going through a time machine. The vehicles on the street suddenly became vintage cars from the 1960s. Restaurants and convenience stores no longer took credit cards. The phone no longer received data signals. To capture this unique experience, I implemented a "modern" nostalgic aesthetic for all the digitally-taken photos, which features the old-time quality of black and white pictures as well as embraces the sharpness and the low-light sensitivity of digital photography.
