«CHAMPÚ is my love story with an amazing group of teenagers in Havana’s suburbs, which started in 2018, and my wife Helen. The images of those young girls and guys are mixed with colorful still-lifes from the neighborhood La Vibora which became my nest in town. Cuba is in total crisis nowadays but the energy of those young persons could be the roots of pure happiness and resilience, no matter what happens in their dying country. It is also an intimate journey with universal connections, a space for dreams and new joy.
CHAMPÚ is printed on glossy magazine paper, resulting in a sprawling and flexible publication of 208 pages that is not just documenting a particular youth but tries to reflect a flowing beauty. A short story written by Oriss, one of the young girls of the group, is part of this book.»
