Story

Havana Street Art Graffiti art, as a call for change illustrating the fear, the hope and the wishes of young Cubans. In a system full of suppression, stetting those visual statements needs a lot of courage and conviction. This series should carry their idea out of that isolated system and pay respect to those brave artists.

About Photographer

Born in Zurich (1980), I stepped into the world of photography in 2000. Reflecting the last years, I developed my vision towards fine art black and white photography where reduction and abstraction allow me inspiring the spectator's feelings and emotions.
