Ellen Silverman’s set of photographs, ‘Where Cuban’s cook’ does what it says on the tin. Bright-coloured walls, worn tiles, clean surfaces and a mismatch of threadbare chairs and furniture, they’re a beautiful insight into the Cuban way of life. Visit Ellen’s article on saveur.com:
"The rooms were furnished with old things, frayed things, things in constant use. But I also noticed how each kitchen told the story of those who lived there. Even in the photographs without people in them, the spaces conveyed their presence: You can see how someone had lavished attention on an arrangement of plates, how they had set a table for lunch, or how a little plastic flower was positioned just so—how someone had worked to make things pretty or put things in place. And however minimal the kitchen, each one was equipped with essentials: a pressure cooker in which beans were bubbling, a small stove-top coffeepot, and a gas cooktop—sometimes with a pot of rice simmering on top of it. These kitchens might be spare, but they’re beautiful—and, I think, vital emblems of those who live, and cook, within them." [via www.saveur.com]
