An elegant hotel now serving as an elementary school...the parlor of a grand mansion transformed into a barbershop...these are Havana’s most intimate spaces. Having enjoyed four years of unprecedented access to the private interiors of Cuba’s capital, Andrew Moore has created an unrivaled portrait of both its legendary historic architecture and the city’s inner life. These rich and elegiac images capture intimate details and sensuous moods, creating an open-ended drama that unfolds with each viewing. Painterly light lends grandeur to Havana’s most unlikely landmarks. Andrew Moore’s work is distinguished by its singular perspective, one that combines a documentarian’s love of subject and story with an unexpected poetry.

Andrew Moore's large-format color photographs offer breathtaking views of the Cuban capital's crumbling baroque splendor in Inside Havana. The photographs, a mix of street scenes and interiors, show color-saturated stucco storefronts and dilapidated courtyards. Residents seem dwarfed by their improbably high-ceilinged apartments, with huge transomed windows and faded, chipping walls. Russophilic communist kitsch mingles with antique furniture and modern electronics. The book shows off a range of Cuban architecture from colonial-era neoclassical to art nouveau to the "revolutionary" architecture of the 1960s and includes a preface by critic Andy Grundberg (Crisis of the Real) and an introduction by Cuban architect and historian Eduardo Luis Rodriguez.
