Discover the colourful soul of Havana with renowned photographer Heidi Hollinger!
Heidi Hollinger first travelled to Havana in 1988 and has been returning often for almost 30 years. On every trip to Cuba’s capital, she visits Selene, her adoptive grandmother. She truly knows the city intimately.
Like Heidi, you’ll be dazzled by Havana—the city’s endless visual feast will blow you away. She’ll introduce you to the peanut vendor who calls out “Mani” (peanuts) and offers his wares in a white paper cone; to Cuban women draped in colours and standing in doorways; and to barefoot children playing soccer in public squares. Heidi’s expert eye captures the extraordinary beauty of the Baroque and Spanish Colonial architecture, which bears witness to 400 years of history, the vibrancy of Cuba’s music, the country’s new cuisine, the rooftop terraces, the thrill of getting around by almendrón (vintage cars), the top shops and restaurants and the loveliest areas to visit. The stunning photos by the internationally known photographer will have you walking and dancing in the streets of Havana before you’ve even booked a ticket.
