Overview

"Here is work by three generations of Cuban photographers that highlights the continuing achievements of Cuba s artistic community, as well as the social and political changes in Castro s Cuba. Shifting Tides: Cuban Photography after the Revolution, organized in three sections with a prologue gallery, includes more than 100 black-and-white and color photographs." "The prologue gallery provides a context within which to understand the images produced after the revolution. Included in the prologue are examples of the iconic photographs made by important photographers of the revolution s military struggle, such as Korda and Osvaldo Salas. These images reflect the heroic personalities of the revolution and establish a baseline from which three generational shifts in the conception and uses of photography can be traced." "Photography in the Cuba of Fidel Castro has been and remains a thriving means of artistic expression. Through their images, photographers working in the aftermath of the military revolution have compiled a legacy of a people, of a country, and of the revolution itself. From the pictures of the new social order that followed the revolution through the experimental reclamations of personal histories that defined a new generation, to the individualized spatial investigations of the most contemporary work of artists using photography, Shifting Tides: Cuban Photography after the Revolution provides insights into not only the evolution of the photographic tradition of art making in Cuba but also the trajectory and character of the revolution that spawned it."--BOOK JACKET.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This compelling overview, which accompanies an exhibit from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), documents a vibrant and influential period in Cuban photography. Wride (associate curator of photography, LACMA) demonstrates how photography was critical to documenting and promoting the revolution and, most notably, how it has evolved over the intervening 40 years to a level of sophistication and complexity on a par with, and even exceeding, the best in contemporary work. Featuring 16 artists, the book encompasses the early heroic and idealized imagery of Alberto Diaz Gutierrez (Korda) and others, the proud documents of a nation and its people by artists such as Ivan Ca as and Jos Alberto Figueroa, the iconic and historical allegories created by the likes of Marta Mar a P rez Bravo and Jos Manuel Fors, and the intensely personal work of the current wave, including Pedro Abascal and Abigail Gonzalez. The sum is a radical and exciting compendium that is likely to incite interest from both photography and history readers. An affordable addition, this is highly recommended for large and mid-sized public and academic libraries. Debra Miller, Minneapolis Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    PHOTOGRAPHY THAT SPEAKS A UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE

    Explaining his concept for this absorbing collection of black and white photographs, Tim B. Wride, author and Los Angeles County Museum of Art Associate Curator of Photography, said 'Shifting Tides' is intended to 'expand the common perception of what Cuban photography is generally thought to be. That is, black-and-white, documentary reportage with a hint of magic realism, and replete with iconic images of Che and Fidel.' Rather, Wide continues, there 'is the broad range and inventive nature of work, both conceptual and visual, that has been and continues to be done on the island. The work is expressive, sophisticated, and firmly grounded in an international art dialogue.' Covering 40 years of Cuban photography, the work is expressive, indeed. The volume may be roughly divided into three sections, one celebrating the work of such photographers as Enrique de la Uz, Ivan Canas and Jose Alberto Figueroa, who focused on the common man, workers, street scenes, and the marked changes found on the island. Another section emphasizes everyday life after the revolution, and a third area is distinctly different as these artists never lived in a pre-Castro Cuba. While grounded in Cuba, of course, all of these images speak a universal tongue, which is high praise for the artists who created them.
