FORMATS
Andrew Moore's large-format color photographs offer breathtaking views of the Cuban capital's crumbling baroque splendor in Inside Havana. The photographs, a mix of street scenes and interiors, show color-saturated stucco storefronts and dilapidated courtyards. Residents seem dwarfed by their improbably high-ceilinged apartments, with huge transomed windows and faded, chipping walls. Russophilic communist kitsch mingles with antique furniture and modern electronics. The book shows off a range of Cuban architecture from colonial-era neoclassical to art nouveau to the ""revolutionary"" architecture of the 1960s and includes a preface by critic Andy Grundberg (Crisis of the Real) and an introduction by Cuban architect and historian Eduardo Luis Rodriguez.
