In January 2015, just ahead of Obama’s visit, I traveled to Cuba to document the lives of its youth. Just one year prior, for the first time in fifty years, the United States and Cuba restored ties. However, after decades of economic austerity, the future for young Cubans remains uncertain. With roughly 4 million under the age of 30 out of a total of about 11 million people, the Island’s population is one of the youngest in the hemisphere. While more venues open up for arts, music, and food, resources such as internet are still very limited and young Cubans who remain largely isolated from their counterparts in other countries. These photographs offer an inside glance into the homes, hangouts and lives of a generation straddling outmoded convictions of the past and uncertain prospects of the future.
