The Family lived near the sea in a almost derelict building facing the ocean in Havana with a wooden staircase that was slanting to the left.
Use to call there everyday and chill for a while with them.

This is a great series of social commentary images Si.
Thoroughly enjoying this peek into the " real " Cuba. You have a great ability to " connect" with your subject .

Your skill is not just photographic Simon. In order to be able to take photos like this needs , nerve, patience and genuine charm. Oustanding.

I studied this for a long while Si,

Its imperfections , its intrusions , its peculiar gravitation.

But then again , its harmony is beautiful.

Quality.

I have a feeling you must have lots of stories you could tell. Your captures of people only tell us a fraction. But they do give us an insight into the lives of those less fortunate. Beautifully emotional image........Sandy

Derek makes a good point Si, your work on this trip and possibly others is not just about pointing the camera a clicking the shutter, you've gone that extra mile with these families which has yielded you wonderful images.

The image and brief story has a rawness about it, life isn't all about play stations etc.
