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.
The first VANISHING CUBA book review is in and it’s by British-based DIGITAL CAMERA WORLD Magazine. It’s always exciting when a publication does an independent review of your work. So when Digital Camera World asked us for a book to review, it was our pleasure to provide one.
Earlier this month, Shades of Grey sister magazine Shades of Color featured a comparable 32-page pictorial and interview. I was the first featured artist in this beautifully designed 238-page magazine for the second time.
Many thanks to Shades of Grey Fine Art Photography Magazine for featuring me on the cover of their publication and showcasing my black and white Cuba photography in a stunning 32-page pictorial and interview. It’s nice to be the first featured artist in this beautifully designed 238-page magazine.
I am honored to have my Cuba photography and Vanishing Cuba book featured in the November issue of PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER Magazine.
Amanda Arnold from PPA (Professional Photographers of America) says, “Twenty-four trips to Cuba and tens of thousands of photographs were the inspiration for Michael Chinnici’s photobook “Vanishing Cuba” (Red Octopus Publishing).
It was my pleasure to be interviewed by ARTDOC Magazine for their October 2021 issue. We discussed photography, Cuba, and my upcoming book Vanishing Cuba. I want to thank everyone at ArtDoc for taking an interest in my work.
