Publisher's description: The exceptional photographs in this publication capture the complexity of the Cuban Revolution in all its contradictory beauty. From Constantino Arias's portraits of poverty and wealth in pre-Revolutionary Havana to the photographs of the dead Che Guevara in Bolivia, the Cuban story was told in gelatin silver as much as it was in words.... From the earliest days of the Cuban Revolution, the Revolutionary High Command was intensely aware of the power of the photographic image to advance the ideals of the Revolution, at home and abroad. If portraying the human side of its leaders was an important part of the Revolution's visual ideology, so too was its conception and depiction of the Cuban populace: as early as 1959, the High Command organized mass rallies in Havana assembling more than a million Cubans from throughout the island to celebrate the victory of the Revolution. Cuba in Revolution captures the complexity and the energy of this moment in all its contradictory beauty. It gathers a colossal array of photographs by both known and anonymous photographers into five thematic, chronologically overlapping sections.
