VAULT post - Cuba WEB-3

In the late 80’s and early 90’s, I used agendas to keep track of all the model calls and shoots. I would schedule the dates and paste polaroids from each shoot into the book. I recently stumbled across this agenda from 1989. When I began flipping through it, I came across a page that was dedicated to images of Melissa Casino. I had spent a week in Cuba photographing her for a fashion campaign as well as some shots for Pino Carina shoes.

    Our crew set out in the early morning and arrived at the home once owned by the Dupont family. The house and grounds were frozen in time like most of what we saw in Cuba.  The images were shot in black and white as well as colour and we made use of all the available light and beauty that the Cuban surroundings had to offer.
    We all had a great time and to be able to utilize this amazing location was such a treat.
