Editor’s note: To culminate our special “Revolution at 50” edition, we offer this slideshow of contemporary photographs by Kaloian, a staff photographer for the Cuban newspaper Juventud Rebelde (Young Rebel). All feature the Cuban flag, and none are accompanied by captions—a decision made by Kaloian to erase each image’s specificity and create a generalized sense of life in Cuba, 50 years after the revolution.

All of the photographs were featured in “Cincuenta Veces Cuba” (Fifty Times Cuba), a July 2009 exhibit in Cuba commemorating the revolution’s golden anniversary. To enter full-screen slideshow viewing mode (highly recommended), press the four-arrow button at the lower right, above the word “credits.”
