For the past three years, a Boston photographer who specializes in colorized infrared photography, has been traveling off of the beaten path in Havana, Cuba and the surrounding countryside capturing rare images that explore it s many hidden gems. Using this truly unique approach allows the photographer to reveal sunlight that would otherwise be invisible to the naked eye. Sixty of these vivid panoramic images have been compiled into a 130-page coffee table book, Havana: Light Beyond Vision. With captions offering insight into the places, people, culture and history, from Hemingway's seaside fishing village of Cojímar to Havana's bustling avenidas, each image comes to life on the page with a dreamlike quality that mirrors the mysteries of this island nation.
Havana has a unique blend of Cuban hospitality, beautiful neocolonial architecture, Caribbean sensuality, and economic potential that keeps pulling me back. It's also a country in transition - with one foot in Cold War socialism and one in free market capitalism - the perfect setting for exploring vision, perception, and misperception. The point of this book isn't to offer a stance on the complex relationship between the United States and Cuba. Instead, I share this book with the public in the hopes of shedding some light, both literal and figurative, on our neighbors to the south. explains photographer, Andrew Child.
