Cameron + Company Releases Award-Winning Photographer's Book on...
Photography by Abe Kogan
Foreword by Richard Edlund
For SPLIT SECONDS: Havana, Abe Kogan navigated the streets of Havana, camera in hand, capturing the evocative beauty of an isolated island frozen in time, languishing in the dying embers of its nearly?sixty?year relationship with orthodox communism. This book, the first in a series, captures life on the pavement, which is where Havanas citizens spend their timegossiping over balconies and lingering in the doorways of the once?glorious buildings that have fallen into ruin, their expressions marked by both vitality and hardship.
Kogans black?and?white photographs, which are stripped bare and 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 Havanas urban pulse and focus on the zest and expressiveness of the dynamic community that inhabits a world on the brink of change.
