Praise

“Vintage images of the island of Cuba have a great deal of charm, and that’s on full display in Cuba Then. In the new book, an airplane from Cubana de Aviación floats in the clouds on a double-page spread, looking somehow surreal, while a group of revellers gathers at Sloppy Joe’s Bar in Havana in 1930, clowning with oversize bottles of liquor, and performer Rosita Fornés, plump in a polka dotted dress, poses for a kitsch publicity still in which she appears to have tripped and fallen.” —WWD

“The Cuba left behind is illustrated exquisitely in Cuba, Then. The fascinating book has 250 images, most never before published as well as poetry by Cuban American Richard Blanco, who spoke and read so movingly at President Obama’s second inauguration. Fernandez’s photographs capture all: young Fidel at a 40 mm anti-aircraft gun; a shirtless Che Guevara; ‘Queen’ Celia Cruz on a break; and prima ballerina Alicia Alonso en pointe in a photo from her tutu’d torso down.” —examiner.com
