For two weeks they worked on the project, mixing haute couture with the crumbling backdrop of Havana’s Old Town quarter. Jorge owns more than 100 tailor-made outfits, of which Anatol Kotte selected 30 for this shoot. They are magnificent, colourful and dazzling – rather like the Caribbean island itself.
“The concept behind these images was this: what would it be like if Jorge had stayed in his home country, but had still become the Jorge he is today?” Kotte explains. And so he set out to capture the Cuban-born entertainer – who studied nuclear ecology in Bratislava before settling in Germany – in everyday situations around Havana.


The series can be seen in LFI 04/2018.
