Publisher Comments:

Milton Rogovin traveled to Cuba twice in the mid-1980s to photograph those he calls “the forgotten ones.” He encountered renowned poet Nancy Morejon, who, upon seeing his images, decided to write new poems and select poems from her work that resonated with the photographs. The result is a spectacular collaboration between poet and artist that creates a multi-dimensional portrait of the landscape and people of a place that has been all but invisible to us since the embargo of Cuba more than 40 years ago. Translators Pamela Carmell and David Frye retain the voice and feel of the original poems.

Nancy Morejon is one of Cuba’s most important contemporary poets.

Milton Rogovin is a world-renowned documentary photographer with works in many major collections.
