Cuba – the Caribbean island, is surely one of the most photographed places in the world. The light, the colours, the people, and the life on the streets: each moment seems to offer a perfect opportunity for a picture. One photographer who has explored Cuba repeatedly, through the perspective of his camera, is the American Michael Chinnici. His gorgeous photo book draws on the wealth of stories, experiences and encounters he has gathered during more than twenty trips in recent years. There is no doubt that the New York-based photographer has been successful in his efforts to capture the “soul of Cuba” in pictures.
From the moment we arrived, everyone was gracious and complimentary about the book and excited about my stay. We thank The Stovall House and OE for planning such a memorable event.
It was wonderful to be in Tampa again! This time for an event at the OXFORD EXCHANGE and the STOVALL HOUSE. The OE family treated me like royalty, for which I am forever grateful. More on this later.
Today I had the pleasure of presenting my Vanishing Cuba book at the Books & Books flagship store in Coral Gables, Miami, Florida.
