Split Seconds: Havana

(1 customer review)


IN JULY 2015, Abe Kogan navigated the streets of Havana, camera in hand, capturing the evocative beauty of an isolated island frozen in time. Kogan’s black-and-white photographs, devoid of picturesque tropical landscapes and charming beach scenes, are provocative, intimate portraits of the daily lives of the Habaneros. These inner-city vignettes reveal Havana’s urban pulse and focus on the dynamic community that inhabits a world on the brink of change. This book captures life on the pavement, which is where Havana’s citizens spend their time—gossiping over balconies and languishing in the doorways of the once-glorious buildings that have fallen into ruin, their expressions marked by both vitality and hardship.

    Having been fortunate to see a preview copy of this excellent high quality book I strongly recommend it as a perfect read and coffee table item.
    It does away with the gloss and captures the real Havana and its people at this time of change. With amazing quality photos, all taken natuarally, no staging.
    Makes a perfect Christmas or birthday gift for friends and family. I have alread pre ordered 3 copies.
