For his latest body of work, artist Frank Thiel returns to portrait photography for the first time in over 20 years.
Quinceañeras examines the Cuban tradition of lavish coming-of-age celebrations around a girl’s 15th birthday. Known for intensively researched projects that document temporary states and places in transformation, Thiel uses the quince tradition as a metaphor for the shifting social and economic climate of Havana – creating a portrait of a generation of young women alongside that of the city itself.
