Known as a place where time seems to have stood still since the 1960s, Cuba makes for a fascinating location for street photographers.

Recent developments and the current political climate that re-opened US-Cuba relations poses questions about what the future might bring to the nation, and how quickly things might change.

On a recent trip to Cuba in December 2014, Turkish photographer Ilknur Can created some seemingly timeless photographs using her iPhone. By using a digital black-and- white film filter, she further blurred the distinction between the past and future.Her arrival in Cuba was timely, as she was able to observe how the country reacted to the U.S. decision to release the remaining members of the Cuban Five. “Already Communism is getting eroded and many Cubans are interested in America…it puts everybody in a state of concern about how the future will be shaped,” Can said.

About İlknur Can

My name is İlknur Can. I am living in İstanbul, Turkey.I have been interested in Street Photography but I have been practicing and developing my photography skills via my iPhone. I mostly take daily life photos. Other than that I travel to different cities and countries and focus on city culture and living areas. The iPhone has a fixed focus lens and it’s handy to use everywhere. It disciplines me to take photos without the need of a lens. Because of these reasons, I prefer taking photos via iPhone.
