Havana Col­lec­tion

Abe’s pho­to­journ­al­ism dis­penses with polit­ic­al opin­ion, gos­sip and pre­dic­tion. The images por­tray the endur­ing face of a city still caught up in a 57-year rela­tion­ship with ortho­dox com­mun­ism. But Fidel Castro is dead, Obama has vis­ited Cuba and an accord with the USA had been signed. So Abe’s images taken in 2016 Havana are set in the pro­logue to nor­m­al­isa­tion of rela­tions between the two countries.
