Kattia García: The Wedding

Kattia García: The Wedding - 15 b/w photographs at Zone Zero. "...In Cuba, the fifteen-year birthday parties (the equivalent of the sweet sixteen party in the USA) and the weddings often are lavish. Projecting an image of high social and economic status seems more important than the sheer joy of a celebration in the company of friends and loved ones. These events imitate a lifestyle dictated by mass media that is well off the household’s means. Evidently, the cultural level, motivations and aspirations of the protagonists also play an important part."
