À propos du livre
Cities and towns in Cuba show us in their doors a sea of textures and combinations of materials and colors; the tones created by the effects of time and climate, and social neglect constitute, almost inexplicably, a fatal attraction for the trained eye and sensitivity of the photographer.
This is my second Blurb book on the subject, the first being “Doors of Havana and Matanzas”, published in 2014 and devoted mainly to these two cities. The present book continues exploring Havana, but also adds doors from Santa Clara, Remedios, Trinidad, Cienfuegos, Camaguey, Holguín, Manzanillo, Santiago de Cuba and Baracoa.
