Three months before the death of Fidel, I traveled to Cuba with improvised means, stopping in places described by the Cuban writer Pedro Juan Gutierrez. In his books he frequently uses the expression "animal tropical" when he talks of himself and his compatriots. With these two simple words he refers to the indomitable sensuality that lies under the skin of the Cuban people, and that shines through in every aspect of daily life. My idea was not to document the political situation of the island, which is for months now in the spotlight. I wanted to focus on something that would go over. So I traveled in Cuba with little money and without any assignment, looking, starting from the street, all the knowledge that could make me access in the heart of this sensuality.
