This is Cuba is a selection of images from Lynn’s collection depicting current Cuban life. Lynn has spent time in Cuba on different occasions between 2011 and 2016. In Cuba, Lynn travels with local Cuban professional photographer and friend, Ramsés Batista. Their travels take them from Havana to Trinidad, Cienfuegos and Vinales and local knowledge gains them access to private homes and mansions, boxing clubs and blacksmiths, exploring the colours, culture, people and places of a rapidly changing island.
