“3 days in Havana” are analog panoramic collages from three days I spent in Havana this summer. I just walked around and saw things and shot, and met people and shot some more. I shoot medium format 6×6 and I like the square images, but I wanted to portray street scenes as they are, with distinct little pieces of life, so came upon the idea of putting them together in panoramas, like what some phone apps do. But instead of digitally smoothed stitching, I just overlapped the square images. They don’t align perfectly, but I like that about them. The jagged edges fit Havana well.
