Cuba y Cuba

Published by Smithsonian

New, Hardcover

Reports of poverty and waves of refugees have given most Americans the impression that contemporary Cuba is paralyzed by communist austerity and drained by economic isolation. Yet in this volume, Swiss-born documentary photographer Ren? Burri records a people emanating quiet pride even as they wait for change. A sequence of twelve black and white images depicts the confident years immediately following the 1959 revolution: cigar-smoking workers build fishing boats and children play baseball in front of the National Cathedral. The lush, color-saturated landscapes that follow, captured between 1984 and 1993, focus on the iconography of Cuba's military regime and the vitality of its street life. The books in this photography series showcase the works of post-World War II masters. Each contains more than 40 duotone or color images, and represents an original approach to a particular theme by one of the century's finest documentary or fine-art photographers.
