A Curious Question To / Valentin Astier

What has been your best meeting in Cuba?

To be honest, my trip in Cuba wasn’t really in this perspective. It was more about friendship. We were just a bunch of friends, who wanted to explore this country. Of course we met some Cubans on the street, at some bars, etc. In Havana, because we were strangers, people were constantly asking for money in exchange of a service (at first supposedly free). Sometimes it was cool, like listening to Cuban music in a modest bar or buying clothes in an apartment. But most of the time it was exhausting. So we preferred to observe the city life from some distance at some point. And it was really nice ! In the countryside, it was different. There was less people and mostly tourists. So it was more about exploring the beautiful landscapes around Viñales. And when you’re a group of 6 friends, the relationship with locals is very different, more on the surface. But that didn’t prevent us to learn a lot about Cuba, to understand their way of life and to have a deep experience.

Tell us more about this image
I took this photo in one of the last few Art Deco buildings in Manila, one of the spots my photographer friends and I typically go to shoot. There’s this one room I really like for its unusual shape and details, like this big window in the picture and a sun roof that gives it a nice natural lighting on sunny days. I eventually found out this room has a lot of history and even used to be rented by a popular actor for decades. Fortunately, I was able to take this shot before they closed it off for renovation into a small museum. I used my Pentax Espio 120 SW II loaded with an expired Kodak Gold 100, and turned on its date stamp function on purpose for my ongoing photo diary project.
