It was during the winter of December 2017, and then again in 2018, where I had the freedom to roam this Moorish playground, to indulge in the dramatic sky, the grand house and lush gardens. In an oneiric state, one thousand and one nights springs to mind…….yet, this is an obscure district just outside of Havana; this sublime dwelling must have belonged to a charismatic wealthy baron; a legendary host I imagine, in a bygone era of affluence and opulence, both figments of a time, confined to the past.

These photos were taken during a workshop in Havana with my Photography maestro, Nicolas Pascarel.
