Children wearing the uniform of Communist youth are prepared to salute “Votó!” (“He voted!”), as a woman places her ballot in Cuba’s Elecciones Parciales (Partial Elections). The vote was to elect delegates to the Municipal Assemblies of People’s Power, the country’s unicameral parliament, on April 19, in Havana. The delegates function as district representatives for a two-and-a-half-year term. Image by Yana Paskova. Cuba, 2015.

From the elaborate May Day marches and the ubiquitous posters of Marx and Lenin to the food shortages, forced participation in "Pioneer" youth organizations and restrictions on artists and writers, photographer Yana Paskova, who grew up in communist Bulgaria, is attuned to the echoes and shadows of her own childhood in today's Cuba. Her images from Cuba appeared on The New Yorker's Instagram feed.
