Jan Koster, Havana

Jan Koster, Havana Jan Koster (1959) is best known for his photographs of the Dutch river landscape. In this new project, Koster has abandoned domestic fluvial bliss for the streets of Havana. Havana has to be one of the most photogenic cities of the world, but thankfully Koster doesn't overdo it on the gorgeousness and the colour. These images feel almost restrained at times giving the impression of a final look at the city before the end of the Castro era.  You can see an online book of the work here, hopefully this will come out in print form before too long.
