Split Seconds: Havana

About this Book

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