‚IN THE VOID‘ PORTRAITS FROM CUBA. After Fidel Castro’s death, the gap between ideological aspirations and reality has widened even further. The newly won freedom with access to the Internet and the new smartphones lies like a buffer between youth and reality, reality seems to be disappearing in it.

They are trapped in a void, moving between socialism and capitalism, decay and glamour, rebellious colours and melancholy interiors, and look towards an uncertain future.
