"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” – St. Augustine
I have been wandering the streets of various countries for years now. It's an addiction. I never feel more alive than when I have a camera in my hand and am aimlessly exploring a place by foot. I enjoy the solitude. The chance to observe how others interact and live. A couple of years ago I decided to head to Cuba, a destination that I'd be dreaming about for years. I had never been to a communist country and the prospect of seeing this ideology in practise was exciting. I wasn't disappointed as the street photography opportunities were boundless. I ambled off for my afternoon stroll in Havana and came across a couple of old ladies sitting against a crumbling wall. One screamed out to me. Her face told a thousand stories. I knew that this was an opportunity not to be missed. A couple of clicks, an exchange of some Cuban pesos, a smile and I was on my way to find my next story.
