Everything Cuba is on the tips of traveler’s tongues from the states these days with the thawing of decades of strained relations. Photographer Jay Seldin’s timely book of black and white photography documents an intimate look into the lives of Cubans.
Cuba is cursorily known for vintage cars, futbol, older buildings, images of Castro and Che but his photographs in this book are exclusively of the Cuban people. They represent young and old; their are no words at the core of the book – rather the stories are told in the people you see.
Jay describes his work in this book as, “My photographs are my words that tell the story of the people, the challenges, the love and the hope that is seen throughout this beautiful country”.
His resulting work depicted in this book are from 8 years of travels within the country and over 10,000 photographs taken.
