HAVANA, FROM ON HIGH

Nestled above a decaying district of Havana is a secret village, hidden from the clamor of the streets below, where life spills out onto the rooftops. These makeshift houses are inhabited by Arturo, Tita, Pedro, Lala, Roberto, José, Reynol, Juan, Alejandro, María and Omar. Like many others in Central Havana, they have been forced upward by the chronic housing shortage. From their perch atop the city, these resilient and remarkable residents bear witness to a society that is in the process of a major historical transformation after more than 58 years of revolutionary government.
