BY Michael Chinnici
VANISHING CUBA is a visual storytelling project by American photographer Michael Chinnici. The collection depicts the changes Cuba is facing as it emerges from more than 60 years of isolation and decay. Michael’s 24 trips to Cuba have yielded tens of thousands of photographs, thought-provoking and emotional stories, and created lifelong friendships.
Vanishing Cuba is about capturing the past, present, and future of Cuba, and even more so, about capturing the “Soul of Cuba”. Michael’s love affair with Cuba and the Cuban people clearly comes through in this compelling and beautifully produced book but it’s also filled with many historical references woven into the writings. For this reason, many prestigious University libraries and public libraries across the globe have purchased the book for their permanent collections.
