We wanted to make sure you didn't miss the announcement of our new Sustainer program. Once you've finished reading, take a moment to check out the new program, as well as all the benefits of becoming a Sustainer.

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.”

Be a Sustainer

We surveyed thousands of readers and asked what they would like to see in a monthly giving program. Now, for the first time, we're offering three different levels of support, with rewards at each level, including a magazine subscription, books, tote bags, events and more—all starting at less than 17 cents a day. Check out the new Sustainer program.

Kaloian is a staff photographer with the Cuban newspaper Juventud Rebelde (Young Rebel). He can be reached at kalofotograma@​gmail.​com.
