The Kitchens of Havana

New York City-based photographer Ellen Silverman has been taking pictures of kitchens in Havana, Cuba, for the past two years. Of the vibrant, colorful spaces, Ellen writes: “While the kitchens might be spare, but they are beautiful, vital emblems of those who live, and cook, within them.” To read the full story, see her essay Where Cuban’s Cook, from the March 2013 issue of Saveur.
