“real and purely natural”

by Paul Bellaart

Making real, analogue and purely natural photographs keeps photographer Paul Bellaart strongly in touch with his artistic Dutch roots. As it is this type of portraits with which Bellaart aims to show the enjoyment of life in its purest form, melancholically capturing the essence of real and naïve beauty.

In his beloved Cuba, where he has been coming for more than 20 years, top fashion photographer Eric van den Elsen started looking for the nature of music & dance; both deeply rooted in the Cuban soul and culture. With professional local dancers, Van den Elsen started his personal search to perfectly capture this dynamic Cuban nature. All photographs from the series “El Ritmo de Cuba” were shot in the area of Havana and Santiago de Cuba, 2017.
