Joakim Eskildsen: Cuban StudiesJoakim Eskildsen: Cuban Studies

Published by Steidl.
Text by Abel Gonzalez.

Following American Realities (2016), which dealt with people living under the official poverty line in the United States after the financial collapse of 2011, and Cornwall (2018), a poetic photographic study of the county that voted for Britain to leave the European Union but would now decide otherwise, Cuban Studies is the result of Eskildsen’s (born 1971) journeys between 2013 and 2016, when, accompanied by Cuban journalist Abel Gonzalez, he traveled throughout the country during a period of major transition following economic reforms.

“The more I learned about Cuba,” says Eskildsen, “the more difficult it became to understand. It was like learning to see the world from a different angle.… From my very first journey, Cuba put a spell on me that made me return again and again. It was a time of optimism and uncertainty, and great hopes for the future.”

Joakim Eskildsen: American RealitiesJoakim Eskildsen: American Realities

Published by Steidl.
Text by Joakim Eskildsen, Natasha del Toro, Barbara Kiviat.

In 2010, more Americans were living below the poverty line than at any time since 1959, when the US Census Bureau began collecting this data. In 2011, Kira Pollack, Director of Photography at Time, commissioned Joakim Eskildsen to photography this growing crisis affecting nearly 46.2 million Americans. Based on census data, Eskildsen, together with journalist Natasha del Toro, travelled to the places with the highest poverty rates in New York, California, Louisiana, South Dakota and Georgia over seven months to document the lives of those behind the statistics. The people Eskildsen has portrayed—those who struggle to make ends meet, who have lost their jobs or homes and often live in unhealthy conditions—usually remain invisible in a society to which the myth of the American Dream still remains strong. Many of Eskilden's subjects hold there is no such dream anymore—merely the American Reality.
