Photographer's Note

Guided visit to a sugar refinery located in Ciro Redondo, in the provincia of Ciego de Ávila, in Cuba.
These big mountains are sugar from sugar cane.

Cuba was one of the largest exporters of sugar in the world. Its main partners were the former Soviet Union and the communist countries of Eastern Europe. The disappearance of the communist bloc had drastic consequences for Cuba.
Although sugar cane remains a very important agricultural product, employing a significant parcel of the workforce, Cuba now invests a lot in the tourism industry.
