LOS COLORES DE CUBA

Cuba is where the history and consequences of post-colonization and the fight between economic systems converge to create a unique country. A country that became synonyms of the fighting against imperial practices. As a Brazilian, I feel connected with this Latin-American pursuit of independence, especially because both countries had grown under the intense European slave trade in the region. I created a series of photos using the Cuban flag's color hue on people, the white, blue, and red over their skin, to show how deeply this history is inside them, and all Latin-Americans also.
