Substitute Cuba: A Tale Of Two Guantanamos

IN PICTURES: One professional photographer compares and contrasts two civilizations that exist just a few miles apart within Cuba’s Guantanamo Bay.

In this  poignant picture essay, Reuters journalist Carlos Barria illustrates  the stark contrasts displayed in Guantanamo Bay, where Cubans and members of the U. S i9000. Navy live side-by-side in the darkness of one of the world’s most questionable military bases.

Their particular lives  couldn’t be more different: the 2 Guantanamos, which co-exist cheek-by-jowel, differ hugely in their  cultures and  customs.

Barria’s colourful juxtapositions capture not only the clashes, but also the subtle similarities between  these  neighboring but disparate neighborhoods.
