With the recent news that Cuba and USA relations will be normalized, these pictures from inside an abandoned prison in Cuba provide a haunting look into what things used to be like in Cuba. Built during the 1920s, this giant panopticon prison held thousands of inmates, all of them with zero privacy from the prying eyes of the guards.
There is something about these striking images that makes you stop and think. With the historic news that the USA and Cuba will begin to restore diplomatic ties, these photos of a giant prison from another era show just how impermanent the things we take for granted truly are. Nothing lasts forever, and these images are another haunting reminder of that simple truth.
