Pip spent some time at the end of 2015 in Cuba and here is a foretaste of the pictures from the trip. When he has finished editing the whole trip Pip is planning to produce a book of his Cuban images and perhaps even an exhibition.
‘ I had always wanted to go to Cuba, it just fascinated me, a country in a state of suspended animation, a place I really wanted to photograph. But it’s changing and now relations with the US are getting better it’s going to change even more. I decided that if I didn’t go now it could be too late and the Cuba I wanted to see would have gone. But it was amazing, still a very special place with incredible people.’
There will be updates on Pip’s Cuba project later in the year.
This year’s stills campaign closely follows the moving and already legendary TV ad, it had over eight million views on You Tube in less than a week, and uses the same cast of animated characters created by the brilliant people at Mackinnon and Saunders in Manchester.
It was a marathon complex shoot but the magnificent results more than repay all the effort. Congratulations to everyone involved!
