I was elated to learn that Barnes & Noble will carry my Vanishing Cuba Silver Edition book, beginning March 30. The book will be available for 24 hour delivery from BN.com or directly from their network of over 600 bookstores across the United States.
As many of you know, when I set out to publish my Vanishing Cuba book, my objective was to create something exceptional and not just another book.
I would soon find out if my seven years of photography and two years of writing, design, and production were about to deliver on that promise.
With the arrival of the first few samples of my book, I boarded a flight to Miami for Art Basel, where the Reserve Edition of my book would be showcased for the very first time. But my real interest would be a very special meeting we had set up months earlier.
On September 28, 2021, I departed New York for Milan, Italy, to oversee the printing and production of my long-awaited Vanishing Cuba book. I was headed to my printer, Longo AG, in Bolzano, Italy. My man at Longo, Giuseppe, picked me up at the airport, and we began our four-hour journey across Northern Italy. Giuseppe had been working with me for two years on this project, and he knew exactly what I was looking to achieve. After multiple espressos stops along the Autostrade, we arrived at Longo in the late afternoon. The espresso stops were a good indication of what was to come. Non-stop espresso, all day, every day, for the next two weeks!
