Sandro Miller: Imagine Cuba: 1999-2007
by Ignacio Gutiérrez
Publisher's Description
In the introduction to this volume, Chicago-based photographer Sandro Miller writes, The people of Cuba provided me with faces that told a million stories-stories of war, of love, of heartache and pain, of hard work and determination-faces beaten up by the sun and the heat, but most of all faces that still had pride running deep within the pores of their skin.' Miller was granted official permission to photograph Cuban athletes despite the ban, in place since 1959, on photographing sports figures in that country. Imagine Cuba 1999-2007 collects Miller's lush color and black-and-white portraits of athletes, young and old, against the backdrop of Cuba's streets and gyms, along with his sensitive diaristic narrative.
