Havana Youth: The Millennials Who Are Redefining What It Means to Be Cuban

D.C.-based photojournalist Greg Kahn first traveled to Cuba in 2012. He was struck by the young artist class of Cuban millennials born after 1989, all of whom had grown up during the country’s Special Period after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Where the collectivist mentality had once dominated the ethos of the country, Kahn encountered Cubans in their teens and 20s who were eager to express their individuality through fashion, music, and art. The resulting photos are compiled in Kahn's first book, Havana Youth, which was released earlier this month.
