Book: Anna Mia Davidson «Cuba. Black and White»

Cuba. Black and White

Серия: "-"

In 1961, the United States ban on trade and travel to Cuba, followed by a break in diplomatic relations, created a de facto embargo on information about Cuba. In 1999, at the age of twenty five, Anna Mia Davidson visited Cuba for the first time, determined to capture her personal vision of this isolated Caribbean island nation with her camera. At this time Cuba was just beginning to recover from the Special Period, the economic crisis that occurred after 1989 when Russia withdrew its financial support after nearly four decades. On further travels during the following eight years, Davidson portrayed daily life in the cities, villages and the country - side in an attempt to depict her sense of Cubas soul. Her black and white photographs reflect the resilience, ingenuity and spirit of the Cuban people during the embargo against them. It was also here that Davidson came into contact with traditional forms of sustainable farming a passion that has since influenced her life and work. Having travelled to Cuba many times, it is refreshing to experience Anna Mia Davidsons photographs that show another side of Cuba, rarely seen. Hossein Farmani Exhibition: Leica Gallery, Los Angeles, from 3 December 2015.
