As an American in 1990s Cuba, Tria Giovan risked being branded a traitor. But the photographer continued to visit and, from the dance hall to the hair salon, she captured the resilient spirit of the Cuban people. The 120 images in Tria Giovan’s “The Cuba Archive” are from the period in the 90s when, as an American, travel to Cuba could have seen her branded a traitor, as the country was subject to a US trade embargo. Her trip required lots of planning – and patience. (Photo by Tria Giovan/The Guardian)

Havana's seafront Malecon continued to be slammed by massive waves that flooded parts of the seaside city on Saturday.

The waves have been accompanied by winds passing through at a speed between 35 and 50 km (21 to 31 miles) per hour. (Photo by Alexandre Meneghini/Reuters)
