Following a previous family holiday to Cuba, in November 2019 Roy decided to revisit Havana for a week on his own. This time the stay was to be in a Casa Particular (B&B), rather than a hotel, right in the middle of the old town. What a great choice it proved to be with competition worthy images quite literally on the doorstep, day and night. Never had a single weeks photography trip resulted in so many “keepers”, as a 170-page photographic book that followed proves. In addition to all this were some interesting and amusing stories resulting from Roy’s interaction with the locals, all of which he will also share with you tonight. The fact is that there is so much more to images of Cuba than the stereotype one’s usually seen or to be gleaned from a normal commercial family holiday.
