Very disappointing, all the pictures are over 10 years old. Not a good representation of what Cuba looks like now.

Cuba is much photographed by professional and amatuer photographers alike and there are some excellent books available.Unfortunately this is not one. This is full of the most ordinary images lacking much in the way of interpretation, timing, use of light or engagement - frankly, I've seemn much more interesting images at at camera club meetings and pretty much any reasonably competent amatuer photographer could gather a selection like this every day in Havana.

5.0 out of 5 stars This isnt the Cuba the Castro regime wants you to see. 17 Jan. 2016
By WAM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am going to do something a little different for this review. I bought this book for my dad's birthday, he fled Cuba in the late 50s/early 60s and my mother left after a stint in an agricultural labor camp in 67. Both were children when they left, but they remember the city they grew up in. Like most people, they are used to seeing the best pictures of Cuba, the one that shows the beautiful city like a place out of time, the old perfectly maintained cars, the tourist areas. They knew it wasnt really like that, that it was a show for the guests, but this book is an example of the urban decay that crept into the non tourist areas that you dont see as much. I cant really explain the grim expression on my father's face as he turned each page, seeing the reality of the places my mother grew up, the occasional quip my parents made to each other in Spanish about the regime, seeing the street my mother once lived on, technicolor and crumbling. I don't know if it was a good present in retrospect, they knew that the city wasn't in great condition, but the realization of how it was a tad moving for them. Honestly, the pictures are wonderful, grimy, and full of life, and enough to give to cuban refugees an emotional response. Thank you Jeffrey Milstein.
5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, true to life photography 24 April 2017

Beautiful, true to life photography. Small enough to display on a coffee table or side table (don't hide all this color and culture in a bookcase), but does not take away from the images. This was a gift for friends who just returned from a trip to Cuba and they love it. Now I have to order one for me........

4.0 out of 5 stars Born in Havana 13 Jan. 2012
By Susan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My husband was born into a family of means some 50+ years ago and had to come to the United States with basically the clothes on their back when Castro came to power. Fidel took their manufacturing company, their Havana beachfront estates, and along with everything else generations had worked hard to achieve, including their pride... so now this book sits before us, and in Havana's pictoral demise, it's past beauty can still be seen, like the memories in my husbands mind. Thank you.

4.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful collection of images 20 Nov. 2016
By Greg Ward - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A beautiful collection of images. This compact, affordable book will inspire readers. The photos are well composed, and most appear to make great use of natural available light. Refreshingly, there are no cliches.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully presented 18 Dec. 2012
By A. Levie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was lucky enough to visit Cuba this year (2012) and instantly fell in love with its beauty, the sights, the smells, the music, its architecture. This book was a gift for my boss who was born in Cuba but left when she was a very young girl and it brought tears to her eyes. It would be a welcome addition to anyone's collection of photography books.
