Cuban Folk Singers


This man looked lost, confused, and well.... using my word forgotten. I made this image - and soon after that, in the courtyard behind him, this man became a soulful singer of ballads. An audience of many older Cubans sat listening. I understood the passion in him, but sadly, not the words.

A strong and expressive portrait, he looks utterly dejected. So glad you added the story, so we learn that he still has the music in him. "V"
