HAVANA. Andreas Kaiser. Maximilian Verlag-Sabine Kunst, Munich, 2016. 256 pp. 30 x 26 cm. ISBN 9783782212465 In English.
Publisher's description: Cuba is changing. As a tourist destination, the Caribbean island is becoming increasingly popular. In the first half of 2015 over two million holidaymakers came to Cuba - including around 500,000 Germans. But the growing tourism has been changing the island. Nowhere is this as palpable as in the capital Havana. Even now the panorama of the three-million metropolis is characterized by construction sites. Luxury hotels, golf courses and marinas are being built. The morbid charm of the city - the contrast between a glorious past and austere presence -- fades. In his coffee table book Havana Andreas Kaiser operates this contrast out in all facets. On more than 300 captivating photos Kaiser shows the Cuban capital as a colorful source of zest for life , as El Dorado of the road cruisers and home of the Rumba. But he portrays Havana also as a center of colonial culture and architecture: Once dominated by the different occupiers - later drawn by revolution and socialism. Havana manifests the image of a fascinating city between love of life and the art of survival. A changing metropolis that - as shown here - soon will no longer exist. A tribute to the original, the real Havana.
