Street Photography, The Cars of Cuba

Although the people of Cuba make the country a vibrant and culturally interesting place, it’s also the rich automotive history that often creates a unique setting; street photography, where the vehicles become the subject rather than people. Some fine examples of classic automotive history can be found rumbling along any given street or highway throughout the country. Some of these vehicles are well cared for, pristine examples while others are barely hanging on to their rusted out frames chugging along the streets held together with parts from multiple sources. A 1950’s Benz with a 1980 Mercedes engine, Lada gearbox and Mitsubishi transmission? In Cuba, it can be done! The resourcefulness of their owners will likely have these vehicles on the roads for many years to come.
