Havana: World Capital of Urban Farming?
Wastelands refers to abandoned architecture and spaces which, for UK–based photographer Dan Dubowitz, reveal as much about their past and present inhabitants as they do the psyche of contemporary societies. Having travelled to a number of cities worldwide, Dubowitz, who is trained as an architect, has noted, “It seems that a portion of every city is always a wasteland.” Wastelands that Dubowitz has visited include: Ellis Island, NY, San Gimignano, Italy, Ancoats, England and Havana, Cuba among others.
