The people on Cuba’s streets are open and in most cases like to be photographed. I found interesting scenes at almost every turn. From time to time, there are also illustrious contemporaries in the tourist centres who let themselves be paid for their pitoresque attractiveness and mutate into actors. However, the serious photographer tends to stay away from them.
Since the introduction of the GDPR, there has been a lot of uncertainty in street photography. Yes, I photograph people on the street without their explicit or even written consent. In my opinion, that’s legal, because I don’t exploit these images commercially, but see them as purely artistic works. And it is precisely this kind of use of such photos that is also possible within the framework of the GDPR. However, if someone recognises himself in one of my photos and does not agree, he should let me know [ message by e-mail ]. I will then remove the picture from my website.
