This year we went to Cuba, just before a highly anticipated invasion of the small island by the friendly neighbors from the States. A country like no other, we thought it only makes sense to shoot our memories and the city-scapes seen with a Red Konica Pop, a great fun camera, easy to use and which produces excellent results, in both colour and black and white. Be aware though, Cubans didn’t reach yet the stage of stocking photo films again. The joy of memory sticks and digital images is quite the hype there.

You can find the camera for sale on our website and in our Etsy shop. Camera is in great working condition and has just the right amount of Cuban dust on it to make it perfect.

There is a land far away from Europe, but also far away back in time, when things used to be slower and people were fascinated by TV as the only in house entertainment and connection with outside world. We are swamped today with all kind of screens with internet connection, and the TV in the old sense, when it had a few channels to choose from, seems already somehow antiquated.

Simone Lueck, with her series Cuba TV brings back a long forgotten charm, the one of the main apparatus of the house. The images are saturated in colours, the houses of the people are poor but welcoming, and retro seems to be the word of the day when we think of Cuba. Castro and baseball, cigars and Oldsmobile, rum and Hemingway.

Read the full story of Simone’s TV journey here and here.

We are putting the gloves on, and going to Havana in style, towards a fascinating past.
