Description

“The best light in Cuba is reflected off these faded pastel toned walls. It might be amber, it might be pink. Even with black-and white film, it’s perfect. The light looks like somebody set it up in a studio.”
Iooss loves photographing kids playing sports, you can hear it in his words: “The beauty of the game is seen when you’re a child—when the ball is thrown to you, nothing else exists in the world.”
