Two years ago, I did a one-year experimental printing course at LCC (London College of Communication) and I discovered lith printing, a printing technique I could use with both B&W and colour negatives. The beauty of it is that you never know which tones you are going to obtain until your print reaches the fixers bath. Unfortunately, since I finished my course, quite a few fibre-based paper manufacturers (Agfa, Kentmere and more recently Forte) have stopped producing lith papers to concentrate on the more lucrative business of inkjet papers. Kentmere and Forte used to produce good lith papers, and since some negatives work better with one brand than another, it was important to have a choice of paper manufacturers available. Im just glad I got to know lith printing just before lith papers disappear completely.
Images of Cuba: I first went to Cuba in July 2004. By that time, I did not know much about the country, but knowing people in La Havana definitely helped me to meet more people and to share their daily life, not only in the capital, but also in the remote countryside. I went back to Cuba a couple of times because people, landscape, architecture, culture, colours, and light among other things make Cuba a very special place to photograph
