Description:

First Printing ** (full # line) Large format book. Incredible B & W Photographs, 140 images in Quadratone on photo quality glossy pages of Havana. Culled down from more than 3000 images taken on 4 trips to the capital. "In memory of Walker Evans and his work, Havana 1933" The influence of the master B&W photographers shows through on every page. A feast for the eyes and soul, a preservation of a special city and it's citizens and an artistic tradition. Pristine and probably unread because there is a slight bumping of the head and tail of spine (front side) and therefore unsold. Purchased near Woodstock, NY DJ is Fine -, shiny, with slight rubbing and a little edge wear. Price intact ($65.00). Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: These images, moving and vibrant yet sweetly fragile, were taken during four short trips in which photographer, Alberto Schommer immersed himself in this seductive capital, taking over 3,000 pictures and then carefully choosing these 140 images. From the famed Floridita bar, birthplace of the daiquiri, to the sultry sands of its famed beaches; from the decaying majesty of its splendid architecture to the remarkable spirit of its people - all are captured by Schommer's discerning eye.

About the Author: Alberto Schommer was born in Spain, of Spanish and German heritage. His work has been widely exhibited and collected and has appeared in over thirty books on photography.
