From the conquistadors of the 16th century to the tourists of today, all those who arrive in Cuba are amazed by this place rich in surprises where colourful houses, vestiges of the colonial past, the chrome of the 1950s Chevrolets, a souvenir of the American presence, and the swaying rhythms of the music born of the mixing of populations and the taste for festivities, rub shoulders. Cuba is a moving discovery of a superb tropical country and an endearing people. In this portrait of Cuba, David Alan Harvey's photographs celebrate its people - their vitality and humour, their ingenuity and courage, but also their unshakeable faith in life, and delve into the heart of the island's moods. Elizabeth Newhouse's text traces its history, bears witness to the lives and behaviours of Cubans today, and attempts to project it into the future.
