concurrently to President Barack Obama’s historic visit to the island in March 2016, Michal Greenboim flew out to Cuba with a group of fellow photography enthusiasts.

Since then, the island has added a series of highly notable moments to its slate from the first docking of a US-Cuba passenger ferry to the large haute couture crowd brought along by Karl Lagerfeld for luxury brand Chanel’s runway to the visit of tabloid favorites , the Kardashian family and Kanye West.
