Showing the audience a very different side to a country that is loved for its culture and beaches, this Cuba photo series by photographer Rose Marie Cromwell is intriguing.

The Cuba photo series sheds a new light on the country because of the way Cromwell chose to frame it; "my relationship with Cuba is complicated," she says.

The 'Everything Arrives' series is like a storybook of the photographer's experiences in Cuba. Even though Cromwell has been to this beloved country so may times, she still feels like an outsider in the community.

The set of images does a poignant job portraying what the real Cubans are like and showing us some of their traditions and rituals. Taking the title of her series from a line from a Reinaldo Arenas poem, Cromwell believes it captures the essence of the authentic and realistic streets of Havana perfectly.
