Tom Blachford brings his signature minimalist approach to his latest series, featuring Cuba's capital city.

The photographer captures the architecture, automobiles and everyday life of the residents of Havana. He attempts to shoot from new perspectives and vantage points in order to re-frame what has been continually "overlooked and under-appreciated." Indeed, Blachford finds unexpected beauty in the dilapidated buildings and outdated vehicles. While some people might dismiss Havana as a city frozen in time, Blachford focuses on the charm of Havana's simple ambiance and the easy-going lifestyle associated with it.

Blachford's photographs are saturated with color and character. The bright, voracious quality of the series encourages viewers to open their eyes to a new reality.
