Campesino Cuba by Richard Sharum
Photographer Richard Sharum travelled across Cuba to document the lives of isolated farmers, or 'Campesinos,' and their wider communities at a time of national transition. The histories of these communities have formed the backbone of Cuba, and yet they are rarely depicted in photographic representations of the country.

The Black Leopard by Will Burrard-Lucas
This inspiring book tells the story of a photographer's journey to find the mysterious black leopard. There are few creatures as gorgeous and elusive as the black leopard. In Africa, these magnificent cats are so rare as to be the stuff of legend. Will Burrard-Lucas's love for leopards began during his childhood in Tanzania and propelled him into a career as a wildlife photographer. In his quest to create intimate portraits of animals, he developed innovative technology, including a remotely controlled camera buggy and a high quality camera trap system for photographing nocturnal creatures. Then, one day in 2018, he heard about sightings of a young African black leopard in Kenya and with the help of people from the local community, he succeeded in capturing a series of high-quality photographs of the elusive cat. In this compelling and visually stunning book, Burrard-Lucas tells his story of creativity, entrepreneurship, and passion for wild animals, alongside awe-inspiring images of lions, elephants, and the black leopard itself.
MAGNUM 2020
Magnum Photos is excited to present 'Magnum 2020', a book which brings together a turbulent year of world events through the eyes of this collective. A yearbook of sorts, Magnum 2020 was born out of a year like no other; one which challenged the collective to find new ways of documenting experiences as counties locked down and everyone stayed home to contain the spread of the novel Coronavirus. It was also a year of reckoning for the agency, reflecting on the structures of power and privilege that have existed in the world for generations and understanding how they can be challenged and ultimately undone.
Manuel Rivera-Ortiz: CUBA Finding Home
In 2002, I went to Cuba on a personal quest for self-discovery.I needed to remember what Puerto Rico was like when I was growing up. I'd often been told that, in some ways, time had stood still in Cuba; I'd heard that said by Papá's friends who had immigrated to Puerto Rico from Cuba some years back. I'd sit and listen to their powerful stories about Castro and his regime and the hardships. Mostly, I remember their stories about leaving family behind!
