Baker & Taylor Presents black-and-white photographs of Havana and its people, including scenes of the Revolution and its leaders, people working and celebrating, and portraits of musicians and other notables.
Blackwell North Amer Havana casts its spell on all who visit. One hundred twenty-five black-and-white photographs, both recent and vintage, and most never before published, have been brought together here with evocative text to tell the story of this extraordinary city. The photographs, from an array of remarkable Cuban photographers including Osvaldo Salas, Raul Corrales, Alberto Korda, and many others, examine the links between Havana's present and its past. The photographs capture not just the stunning architecture, but also the people, the music, the ageless traditions, the tenderness, and the turbulence that are the real Havana. Many of these photographs have been seen in major exhibitions internationally, but have never been brought together in a single definitive work. Havana in My Heart celebrates the formidable talent and skill of Cuban photographers and the vibrant and irrepressible spirit of this legendary city. The author takes the reader behind the tourist cliches of Havana's colorful facade to experience the daily lives of its inhabitants, in turn quirky, noble, soulful, and passionate - but always intensely human.
