I am Cuban is an exploration of the largely undocumented life of the Cuban people. Travelling extensively in Cuba between 2007 and 2009, Helena's work contrasts with the well-known images of an isolated, decaying Cuba to highlight a cross-section of Cubans in startlingly earnest and evocative portraits. Helena fixes her lens on segments of society hidden from view – prostitutes, gays, transvestites, punk rockers and swingers. For them, Helena's camera became both a safe haven and a stage. While not a political statement, the images acknowledge the contemporary Cuban reality of pervasive poverty in weary faces, young and old. Among artists, musicians and ordinary citizens Helena found a creative energy, vitality and irrepressible desire to connect to the rest of the world.
