ATLAS OF HUMANITY | NEW YORK
It was an honor to be selected to represent Cuba in the New York exhibit for Atlas of Humanity. And an even bigger honor to be the shows “featured artist” showcasing Vanishing Cuba.
From 10 to 12 March 2023, Atlas of Humanity was back in New York. The exhibition, now at its 9th edition, will be attended by 50 international photographers who showcase the richness and diversity of the world’s ethnic cultures that form the great mosaic of humanity. The portraits and the daily moments captured by these established authors or curious amateurs provide a glimpse into the vanishing cultures of people who are striving to hold onto their heritage in a rapidly-changing world.
New York came after Paris, Milan, Dubai, Tunis, Birmingham, and Cologne. Our project returned to New York, one of the most influential cities for arts and culture. For photographers, New York has always been a city of unparalleled visual excitement, teeming with diverse people and distinctive places. From the high-rise to the brownstone, a clash of cultures and classes; bankers, streetworkers, artists, and celebrities all walk the same streets, attracted by the vitality of its sidewalks.
For this exhibit, Atlas of Humanity was showcased alongside ImageNation New York in the heart of the vibrant neighborhood of Tribeca to celebrate the diverse talents of our international community of contemporary photographers. Curated by Martin Vegas, Atlas of Humanity featured the work of 50 talented photographers, each with diverse backgrounds and experiences.

Wow!!! Thank you, Melanie Chapman, for writing such a wonderful review of my Vanishing Cuba book! And to quote the poet John Dunne… “The poet John Dunne wrote “No man is an island…”. Spend time experiencing Cuba through Chinnici’s insightful eyes, and you may be tempted to reply “…and no island is one man.”
What an honor to have my first published book reside in the University of Cambridge Library in the United Kingdom. Many of you probably don’t know this, but this prestigious University (considered one of the top ten in the world) has over 100 libraries within its library system. Vanishing Cuba can be found in its Latin Studies Library.
