Kelmis - Centro Habana, Cuba, 2009

Photo © Francisco Mata Rosas
It is an amazing portrait, very original. The portrayed man really seems to enjoy rings, bracelets, watches and wildly coloured patterns. In all this generous display of objects that he is wearing it is a kind of relief to see his naked belly and his smile, telling us that there is a man behind all the glamour. - Mr Urbano
