This collection examines the weathered surfaces of the city of Havana: textured woods, worn fabrics and rusting steel to the sea salt–sprayed walls. The crumbling city of the past is juxtaposed with the vibrant inhabitants of today. Havana is dynamic and full of fleeting images, including the repetition of the Cuban flag’s red, white and blue. The photographs were taken by Payne while studying lithography at the Taller Experimental de Grafica de la Habana.
