About the Author
Read an Excerpt
These images are of a changing Cuba. The proud people shown here are responding to reforms and new opportunities, even as they uphold their social values and unique identity. In this way, they maintain Cuba as a warm, enchanting embrace where life’s simplicities entice the observer; camaraderie, energy and humor mesmerize; and a vibrant street life reflects the social bonds that playfully create magic in the air.
Over the course of twenty years photographing the people and landscapes of Cuba, Hilary Duffy has found a vibrant community proving its ingenuity in the face of material scarcity. This book highlights a pivotal time of change in Cuba as it is challenged to uphold its social values and unique identity. Along with candid photographs of day-to-day life, formal portraits in the book are accompanied by transcribed interviews with Cubans sharing their hopes, dreams, and aspirations à la Humans of New York.
