"Moore's lovely, mournful book feels like a pre emptive elegy for a Cuba that hasn't actually disappeared yet." (Richard Lacayo Time)

It is a shame that so many people believe that they are good people, raising a poor country from the problems inherited of the private enterprise and God loving people. What they have created is a society where basic needs are not available and no civil rights and liberties are allowed!!!
Aside from the brilliance of Andrew Moore's technical prowess as a gifted photographer, the aspect of this survey of images is one of awe - how Moore has been able to find the richly colorful beauty in the settings of buildings and remnants of buildings suggesting the grandeur of pre-revolutionary times turned crumbling and merely reminders of the magnificence of the architecture and culture that one was Cuba. Not all of the photographs focus on this aspect of the island; an equal number bask in the incredible beauty of the jungles and shores that even politics cannot obscure. The people in the photographs, despite evidence of near poverty, have incredible dignity. Visiting these powerful photographs is like stepping back in time with an eye on the present - the dichotomy is astonishing.
Though Cuba remains an isolated suggestion of the lost city of Atlantis, Andrew Moore has opened windows through which we may view the past while hoping for a more accessible future. This is a stunning book - the basis for touring exhibitions of this very fine photographic artist. Grady Harp, January 14
