Wandering through Centro Havana

Photo Feature by Elio Delgado

HAVANA TIMES, Sept. 22 — I left home early to capture images in Centro Havana, one of the most populous municipality of the Cuban capital. In the streets life boils. Some people are on their way to work, others going to the store shopping.

Over here, a group of taxi drivers are waiting for riders; over there, women are looking through the stores for the things they need. Everything in the streets of Centro Havana is the going and coming of people of different ages, each one focused on their own affairs.

On each street is combined large-scale State commerce with small owner-operated businesses gradually increasing in number. Although begging isn’t common in Cuba, there’s no shortage of those who take advantage of the images of saints to request money from passersby, exploiting people’s beliefs.
