Cuba 1959

Author(s): Tony Nourmand


New Year's Eve, 1958, 10pm: Magnum photographer Burt Glinn is at a black tie party in New York when he hears news that dictator Fulgencio Batista has fled Cuba. By 7am the next morning, he is in Havana in a cab, saying 'take me to the revolution'. Such photojournalistic fervour allowed Glinn to be in the middle of the action to capture the Cuban Revolution as it unfolded on the ground. His magnificent photographs convey the revolutionary idealism, mayhem and excitement of that moment in history. This tome includes some of Glinn's most iconic Cuban photographs.
