An elegant hotel now serving as an elementary school...the parlor of a grand mansion transformed into a barbershop...these are Havanas most intimate spaces. Having enjoyed four years of unprecedented access to the private interiors of Cubas capital, Andrew Moore has created an unrivaled portrait of both its legendary historic architecture and the citys inner life. These rich and elegiac images capture intimate details and sensuous moods, creating an open-ended drama that unfolds with each viewing. Painterly light lends grandeur to Havanas most unlikely landmarks. Andrew Moores work is distinguished by its singular perspective, one that combines a documentarians love of subject and story with an unexpected poetry.
