It was great to be featured with a 12-page spread in the July issue of FUJILOVE Magazine. I want to thank the founder, Tomash, for his interest in my work and the Managing Editor, Stephanie, for the interview.
The Vanishing Cuba journey has been an exciting eight years, and there’s still so much more to look forward to. With the booking coming out in September / October, the excitement has only been growing. Just this week, I completed my sixth interview featuring the book and my Cuba photography. I’m so fortunate that people enjoy my vision and love for the Cuban people.
See below for the full article and interview. Muchas Gracias!

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.
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.
