Photographer's Note

In Cuba, where a revolution took hold in the 1950s, a second revolution of sorts is under way as the nation moves away from dependence on the sugar industry.

The Cienfuegos Mill and refinery complex, built in 1917 in Santa Cruz del Norte by the American Hershey chocolate dynasty and confiscated by Cuba in the 1959 revolution, is one of about 75 mills that have been shut down in the past two months. Only about 75 others remain up and running.

far east sugar prices now are lower than cuba can sustain.
