CUBA 100 YEARS OF CUBAN PHOTOGRAPHY

Introducing the latest fully-illustrated catalogue of vintage photographs for sale from Rare Photo Gallery. Cuba: 100 Years of Cuban Photography offers a representative sample of the breadth of photographic practice in Cuba in the decades between the 1860s and the 1970s. Nineteenth-century studio portraiture, tourist views, family archives, images of tobacco farming and urban life in the 1950s, la Revolucion with Fidel Castro, Che Guevara and Camilo Cienfuegos, and photographs by Alberto Korda, Osvaldo Salas, Liborio Noval and others -- Cuba: 100 Years presents all of this and more in a rich array of images showing the many sides of Cuba rarely seen outside its borders.
