"Moore’s subject is history in process, and in Cuba he finds history not just happening but time-lapsed, history waiting to take the next step. His Cuba, lively, keen-eyed, terrible and lovely, has the aspect of an unfinished collage. The craft of collage, the recombining of displaced, decommissioned things, is often cherished as a form of salvage, or even (mawkishly) as an art of redemption. But there is no salvation or completion until each scavenged part can be persuaded to consign its origins and its traumas to the past and agree to face the future. This Cuba, unfinished and waiting, has the querulous virtue of refusing to forget."
- Excerpt is reproduced from Andrew Moore: Cuba.

Andrew Moore: Cuba

Published by Damiani
Introduction by Joel Smith. Text by Orlando Luis Pardo Lazo.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Andrew Moore: Cuba</I>.American photographer Andrew Moore began photographing in Cuba in 1998, and over the next fourteen years he made ten further visits, working to reveal the many facets of the island’s unique character and life. In 2002, he published some of this work in Inside Havana, which is now out of print. This new edition includes many of Moore’s older classic images but reconceives its predecessor with a new layout and finer, larger reproductions. Cuba also features many older photographs never previously published, as well as new photographs made specifically for this edition. The afterword was especially commissioned for this edition from Orlando Luis Pardo Lazo, one of Cuba’s leading independent bloggers.
Working with a large format camera, Moore insightfully records the shifting fortunes of Cuba, in superb photographs full of painterly light and dynamic color. His images span a tremendous variety of subjects, ranging from humble interiors to magnificent modernism, as well as portraits and landscapes. One theme introduced in this revised version is the contrast between the frayed patinas of Cuban homes and the great, unspoiled beauty of the island’s nature. Cuba is a stirring portrait of a country isolated from the globalized world, overflowing with its own remarkable riches.
The photographs of Andrew Moore (born 1957) are represented in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum, Yale University Art Gallery, The Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Library of Congress, the Israel Museum, the George Eastman House and the Canadian Centre for Architecture.

Andrew Moore: Cuba

Andrew Moore: CubaWhere is Cuba Going? Find out this weekend in The New York Times Magazine, whose cover story, by John Jeremiah Sullivan, is richly illustrated with photographs by Andrew Moore. According to The Times' behind-the-scenes 6th Floor blog, the Cuban government would not issue The Magazine a work visa for a staff photographer. "After an unsuccessful search for photographers who were headed to Cuba on their own, or who had been there not too long ago," Stacey Baker writes, "we discovered that Moore had a book coming out in October called… Cuba. It turned out that Moore, a regular contributor—he shot New Orleans for a March issue of the magazine—had been traveling to the country since 1998 and been there as recently as January. When we saw his unpublished images, we could not believe our good fortune. The picture of the Bacunayagua Bridge, for example, seemed to have been shot expressly to be the cover it would become." To view a slideshow of additional photographs from the book, see the New York Times Reinventing Cuba post. To see the Bacunayagua Bridge cover shot, visit our blog. continue to blog
