I Was Cuba: Treasures from the Ramiro Fernandez Collection

by Kevin Kwan - £15.99  Chronicle Books (2007)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9780811860536 | ISBN 10: 0811860531

While most think of Cuba as a mythical island of rum, rumba, and revolution, period photographs reveal a more complex place. I Was Cuba is an original look at Cuban history as seen through the Ramiro Fernandez Collection—arguably the world's leading archive of Cuban photos and ephemera.
 
I Was Cuba showcases rare, vernacular images from the nineteenth century through the revolutionary period, exploring the everyday and the eccentric. With texts from famed Cuban writer Reinaldo Arenas (Before Night Falls), this captivating volume is an intimate view into a bygone era of glamour, political upheaval, and astounding visual culture.
