Overview

Renowned photographer Michael Eastman pays haunting tribute to Havana's faded glory. In his numerous works, internationally acclaimed photographer Michael Eastman often focuses on the facades and interiors of the world's cities, such as Paris, Rome, and New Orleans. In this book he explores the houses and streets of Havana. Nearly one hundred photographs from the past two decades reveal a world where triumphant past and vanquished present collide. Painterly in quality, these richly colored photographs are dramatically lit and exquisitely detailed. Though mostly devoid of people, they manage to capture contemporary Cuban life through suggestion: an empty chair, an ancient car, a decrepit hallway, a forgotten chandelier. The result is as eloquent as a love poem written to a city rich in history, culture, and feeling.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Photographer Michael Eastman, who has traveled to the world's great cities to document his choice of building facades and interiors, joins the ongoing parade of picture books ... capturing the declining majesty of Cuba's capital city. Eastman has spent the better part of two decades creating these superreal color photographs of all manner of objects—an empty chair, pre-Kennedy-era cars, crumbling doorways and staircases—all suggestive of Havana's still-mesmerizing power."

Robert Birnbaum, The Daily Beast, 12/22/11
