My clever friend Amy (exhibiting as Hola Holga) opened the show of her most recent sojourn in Cuba in Melbourne tonight.
Her work captures the richness of the Cuban street – a natural draw for photographers.
Amy brings to life not just that distinct Havana palette of blues, virdigris and chalky yellow – she describes being unable to separate the people from the place.
Her pictures are enlivened with people in motion and at rest – giving a sensitivity to the tempo of the city.

Amy’s work is currently showing at 1 Spring St, Melbourne (enter off Flinders Lane) until 26 November.
