havana through the lens of robert polidori

page after page of robert polidori's photography book titled havana 
is filled with elegantly decaying architecture, peeling stucco 
and crumbling building facades. 

these rooms are interesting to me for their sherbert colors and 
the carpet-like effect of the tile, which reminds me of another 
book havana tile designs that contains examples of tile produced 
in havana during the early 20th century.

but i digress…

his work has a visceral appeal, for i feel as if i'm there now in this room. 
i can hear the breeze coming through the open shuttered doors, and feel 
the sun-warmed floor beneath my bare feet.
