I travelled to Havana, Cuba in March of 2016 with my wife and 3yr old son. We stayed at a resort about 25km from Havana. Originally we had hoped to stay at some Airbnb place in Old Havana, but we found out they don’t allow Canadians to book on that site in Cuba. Hopefully next time we visit this amazing country those restrictions will be lifted. Staying at the resort was nice with good food, drinks and of course the beach. But I really wanted to see and photograph Havana. The first time I went to Havana was via taxi which was a classic American car. As we got closer to the city I seriously felt that I had gone back in time about 50 or 60 years. Old Havana is amazing. It is truly a photographer’s dream. You have colourful old crumbling buildings, vibrant American cars and of course the Cuban people. I will definitely revisit this wonderful city again as there is still so much to see and experience.
I shot everything on my Contax G2 35mm film camera. I used Portra 160, Portra 400, Portra 800 and Kodak Ektar 100. The Find Lab did an amazing job scanning and developing these so that I had very little to do with them afterwards. I used the Zeiss 28mm and Zeiss 45mm lenses for these pictures. Here are some photos from the trip.
