Reportage 2014

The Cuba reportage is the photographic representation of my experience during the month I spent researching for my bachelor thesis in design and arts.
An island full of contradictions, beauty and misery, positiveness and cynicism. The main focus was about the long graphic and silk screen printing tradition that characterised all the visual communication from the revolution in 1959, until the end of the Cold War. This goal brought me inside the old workshops in La Habana, where this artisan knowledge is still preserved by the last serigraphics. The contact with these people allowed me to have a deeper insight into the state of mind of a country characterised by extremes and complexities difficult to grasp at a first sight.
