'American photographer Andrew Moore began making pictures in Cuba in 1998, and during ten subsequent visits spread over the next fourteen years, worked to reveal many facets of the island’s unique character and life. In 2002, he published some of this work in Inside Havana, to great acclaim, and which is now out of print. This new edition, while including many of Moore’s older classic images, reconceives its predecessor with a new layout, as well as finer and larger reproductions. This new book also includes
many older photographs never previously published, as well as new photographs made specifically for this edition. The afterword was especially commissioned for this edition from Orlando Luis Pardo Lazo, one of Cuba’s leading independent bloggers. Working with a large format camera, Moore insightfully records the shifting fortunes of Cuba, in superb photographs full of painterly light and dynamic color. His images span a tremendous variety of subjects, ranging from humble interiors to magnificent modernism, as well as portraits and landscapes. One theme introduced in this revised version is the contrast between the frayed patinas of Cuban homes and the great, unspoiled beauty of the island’s nature. Cuba is a stirring portrait of a country isolated from the globalized world, overflowing with its own remarkable riches.' (from the publisher's description).
