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.
