Rena Effendi, documented many of the neighbourhoods and enclaves that appear in the work of Padura and other Cuban artists. In her photos of Havana, we see a city almost frozen in time. Relics of another era dot the streets, like props from a period film. Effendi also depicts the city’s lively street life, photographing people in motion against a backdrop of vivid murals and Havana’s signature pastel colors. Cuba is neither a paradise nor a hell but, rather more of a purgatory, where some of us have the possibility of salvation.
