Not too long ago I was having a conversation with a coworker and in passing conversation she mentioned she wrote a book. I thought, excuse me?! You wrote a book and speak of it so nonchalantly? I thought that was the coolest thing ever. Although the book is currently out of print, I think its both admirable and notable for someone to write a book about their homeland. I tried putting my Google research skills to the test and alas couldn't find a copy available in the US but instead I found the photographer Tria Giovan that my coworker worked with on the book, Cuba The Elusive Land.

I love the architecture, color, textures and emotions that are invoked in these everyday life scenes. It a real treat to be invited into the lives of the individuals . It's almost mesmerizing.

I am Cuban, it hurts to know what is going on with my fellow country men. It is an exotic destination and that is all the world sees.

its so funny you should say that, because for me, most ppl I know think of cuba as being negative and they aren't aware there is beauty there. I think its always good to know both sides of a story.
