At the beginning of the 2021 Art Basel | Miami Art week, MIAMI LIVING Magazine featured my Vanishing Cuba book on their home page, Arts & Leisure section, and their Art Basel – Art Miami week guide. It’s a great read.

T+L writes, “Few places on earth compare with Cuba—an isolated, communist island nation frozen in time. The country has a seemingly endless collection of vintage American automobiles, some of the best-preserved Spanish colonial architecture, and the world’s most renowned cigars and rum. A new coffee table book by MICHAEL CHINNICI captures its evolving face and constant soul.”

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.
