Elva, 73 years old, used to live near La Bodeguita Del Medio, an institution famous for its traditional Cuban mojitos that she claimed is as old as her. In exchange for a photograph, Réhahn gave her a Cohiba Esplendido cigar, and they smoked together for more than an hour. With the crown of red petals atop her head and the bold expression on her face in this photograph, there is something about Elva that might remind viewers of the spirit of Frida Kahlo. Whenever he returns to Cuba, Réhahn makes a point to stop by and visit this intriguing and powerful woman.
Photo taken in 2013 in Cuba
