Photographer Aleksey Naroditskiy made an expedition to Cuba in 2011 where he had studied and pictured the most attractive constructions built during the socialist periods. After the 1959 revolution's victory, many outstanding constructions were built on the Island of Freedom: culture centers, stadiums, parks. Local culture and aesthetic of the United States, as well as following the political ideology of the Soviets, multiplied by the industrial techniques, gave a wonderful artistic result. The Cuban architecture in Naroditskiy's photos appears to the Russian audience as an exotic understanding of domestic modernism. It seems there are only bright color, expression, beautiful graffiti ... The architecture of socialist Cuba as an extension of freedom, open emotion and temperament of its inhabitants.
