Statement from Steve McCurry on the back of print
“I took this photograph of a Soviet-era car on the colourful streets of Havana during my first trip ever to Cuba in 2010. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Old Havana is a time capsule of these wonderful vintage cars, and amazing architecture. There are few places I’ve yet to travel, and Cuba was one of those places until only five years ago. By the time I had started my career in photography in the ’70s, the U.S. and Cuba had already cut all diplomatic ties in 1961. Since 2010, I’ve made multiple trips, and one of my more recent trips happened to coincide with President Obama’s announcement to begin rebuilding the diplomatic ties with Cuba once more. I’m continuously drawn to the energetic scenes and people of Cuba, and I look forward to many more trips to the historic island.”
