black & white previews
All colour images are also available as black & white prints. The b&w previews offered here are produced by simply desaturating the image via Javascript. The result is a neutral b&w preview which may appear flat or too dark/bright. Before printing, however, each image is individually assessed and adjusted for best contrast, tonal quality, and dynamic range.

Monumento a las victimas del Maine along the Malecón
Monumento a las victimas del Maine along the Malecón
This monument commemorates the victims of the USS Maine that was blown up in Havana harbour in 1898. Until 1959 the monument was topped by an American eagle. Nowadays, the inscription on the monument reads: "A las victimas del Maine que fueron sacrifiados por la voracidad imperialista en su afán de apoderarse de la Isla de Cuba." alluding to a theory according to which the ship was blown up by US-agents in order to obtain a pretext to be able to declare war on Spain.
