Cuba is a discovery of a territory with mental images of the memories of another, Puerto Rico, native land of Manuel Rivera-Ortiz. A personal quest for self-discovery during an encounter with a territory strongly marked and, apparently, frozen in 1950s Americanism, a paradise for photographers and stereotypical images.
However, here the focus is on populations who have survived in the shadow of tourists. The prism of Puerto Rican memory immerse us into a world of bonfires, palm trees and the sparks of Salsa dances...
