PASSAGE TO CUBA: AN UP-CLOSE LOOK AT THE WORLD'S MOST COLORFUL CULTURE -- CYNTHIA CARRIS ALONSO. Skyhorse Publishing, New York, 2015. 210 pp. with 156 ills. (132 col.). 24 x 34 cm. ISBN 9781632206527 In English.
Large format. Publisher's description: To stroll the streets of Cuba -- to hear the rumbling engines of its 1950s automobiles, the jazz, and the rumba -- is to travel back in time, to see jaw-dropping natural beauty and the artists, musicians, and folklore of legends. With access few others have had, Cynthia Carris Alonso has spent twenty years capturing Havana's crumbling, baroque splendor. Her photographs celebrate the dreamy palette of Cuba -- salmon pink, sky blue, apricot, aqua green -- and reveal the contrast between patina homes; peeling stucco apartments; and the great Capitol Building, Havana Cathedral, and Hotel Nacional. With Passage to Cuba, Alonso opens the doors to an exquisite but rarely seen place. So take a stroll along the Malecon seawall; marvel at the dancers with their colorful, ornate costumes; lose yourself in Jose Fuster's spellbinding mosaic designs; or simply relax in the warm sun of the countryside, where the calm, aging fishermen spend their days and where Ernest Hemingway wrote The Old Man and the Sea.
