Cuba: Photographs By Andrew Moore 1998 2012 Limited Edition

€110.00
di Andrew Moore
 

American photographer Andrew Moore began photographing in Cuba in 1998, and over the next fourteen years he made ten further visits, working to reveal the many facets of the island’s unique character and life. In 2002, he published some of this work in Inside Havana, which is now out of print. This new edition includes many of Moore’s older classic images but reconceives its predecessor with a new layout and finer, larger reproductions. Cuba also features many older photographs never previously published, as well as new photographs made specifically for this edition. The afterword was especially commissioned for this edition from Orlando Luis Pardo Lazo, one of Cuba’s leading independent bloggers.
Working with a large format camera, Moore insightfully records the shifting fortunes of Cuba, in superb photographs full of painterly light and dynamic color. His images span a tremendous variety of subjects, ranging from humble interiors to magnificent modernism, as well as portraits and landscapes. One theme introduced in this revised version is the contrast between the frayed patinas of Cuban homes and the great, unspoiled beauty of the island’s nature. Cuba is a stirring portrait of a country isolated from the globalized world, overflowing with its own remarkable riches.

This signed and numbered deluxe edition reintroduces the Cuban photographs of Andrew Moore (born 1957). Taken from 1998 to 2002, Cuba offers a series of poignant interiors that display the changing fortunes of the country over its five-hundred-year history, with portraits and landscapes that hint at changes coming to this island nation. Originally published as Inside Havana in 2002 to wide acclaim, this new version expands that book with a reconfigured layout, finer and larger reproductions, older photographs never before seen or published, as well as new work made specifically for this edition. One of the themes introduced in this version is the contrast between the frayed patinas of Cuban homes versus the great, unspoiled beauty of the island’s nature itself. It is a stirring portrait of a country isolated from the globalized world, overflowing in remarkable riches.
