Full Description

"A new book of black and white images, taken over three decades, showcases Raúl Cañibano’s love for his native country." — Mee-Lai Stone, Guardian

"Raúl Cañibano’s photographs of post-revolution Cuba transcend the trite depictions of the island nation. In Absolut Cuba, he celebrates the extraordinary lives of ordinary Cubans, as only a native eye can." — Black&White Photography Mag

"A stunning book, it is truly a masterpiece of photographic excellence that everyone can learn from." — Amateur Photographer
This beautiful book presents a selection of Cuban photographer Raúl Cañibano’s photographic oeuvre from nearly three decades. In these affectionate and astute photographs, he captures the heart and soul of Cuba. He seeks out Cubans as they are, in everyday situations, in their homes, on the streets, in the fields, and in the cities. In these images, the artist captures the eternal human drama: faith, old age, death, games, tenderness, love, anxiety, and a desire for beauty. His subjects appear as themselves in all their complexity, granting us a look into their inner lives. 

Text in English, German and Spanish.
