For artistic duo Formento + Formento, aka husband and wife Richeille and BJ Formento, photography isn’t just about producing images that are easy on the eye.

Their work explores the themes of love, loss, longing and the burden of memory.

The ‘She is Cuba’ series is a collection which positions Cuban women at centre stage, radiant, vivacious and playing the heroine.

The intention was to capture the twilight of the Castro era, the imminent change, the struggle, the anxiety and the hope.

Stylish, arresting, and undeniably beautiful, the above pieces and more are now available through The Little Black Gallery.
