Cuba Land of Spirit celebrates the richness of Cuban life. James’ love for the island and its people comes shining through in his photographs. Visiting his subjects frequently over several years, he integrated into the fabric of their lives and developed an instinctive feel for what makes them tick.
His black and white images capture the essence of the country’s Latin vibe, from cafe society to street parties, to romantic interludes. They conjure a national energy and pride, revealing the people’s natural love for life. These images capture the Cuban people in all their rhythmic and sensual glory.
