Fábio Roque – The Cubans

Cuba holds a special place in our hearts. Portuguese photographer Fábio Roque captured daily life on the (still) tranquil pearl in the Caribbean. For me personally it's a sweet trip down memory lane.

We made a smashing list in 2011 in which we totally predicted the second coming of Jezus Lush and did all kind of other revelations that definitely happened this year.
