About this image

People from all over Cuba visit Remedios during ‘Las Parrandas de Remedios’, a Christmas festival. The narrow streets are filled with vendors, fairground rides and people. I saw this man walking towards me and took a picture, he then put his dog on his head, I took one shot and then he moved on. His attire and his Chinese Crested dog, with less hair than normal, was so unusual - shooting with film I just hoped that I had captured the image.
