Photographer note: “The image of the red car and the waves was the very first image I envisioned, even before I went to Cuba. It took me five years and more than thirty trips up the lighthouse’s one hundred forty-four stairs to get exactly what I wanted — to get the light, the waves, the car to all line up with the vision I had. By the time I got the shot I was on a first name basis with the lighthouse keeper — who thought I was completely crazy, lugging my heavy camera gear up the lighthouse so many times. Five years later, I asked my wife to marry me here.” All images courtesy of Lorne Resnick. All rights reserved.

“The sweat, the heat, the sensually glorious dancing, the music, the electricity in the air — I fell in love.”

Photographer note: “Illa was a good friend of mine. He has this gorgeous 1952 caddy that he rented out to people for weddings or Quinceañera’s. He had parked in in front of the Portages Cigar factory for this shot. About a year after I took this shot a hurricane blew through and destroyed the sign.” Image courtesy of Lorne Resnick.

“I want this book it to be like what Cuba is for me — a place where just walking the streets, breathing the air, and connecting with the people feels like a contact high.”
