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.
