Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Much of today's most exuberant, most creative, and most telling imagery can be found in the street. A public art gallery of visual icons, each city hosts permanent collections and temporary exhibits, each country reflects its own much-loved identity.

Cuba has a unique place in the world's street galleries, where its colonial past and the revolution have created something vibrantly distinct. Che Guevara is a popular presence, but beyond the ideology the streets provide a venue to enjoy pre-Revolution enamel Coke signs, Crystal beer and Cohiba cigar billboards, the imagery of the Buena Vista Social Club, and a nostalgic look at the chromium trim and high tail fins of 1950s automobiles.

Book News Annotation:

Photographer Barry Dawson's images capture the vibrancy of Cuba's colonial past, as well as a lively contemporary culture of street art representing revolutionary propaganda, 1950s nostalgia, religious fervor, music, and humorous street advertisements. 8.5x9<">.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
