About This Item

Göttingen: Steidl, 2003. A near-fine copy with a few trivial marks on jacket, generally clean and bright. Large oblong folio (11.5 x 15 inches). 124 pages. Color photographs. Cloth; dust jacket. Third edition. "Havana is a particularly rich setting for Polidori's inquiries. The curves and columns that line the streets refer to past eras and speak of the political, social and economic forces that have driven the city to its present condition. Through his rigorous and sensitive examination--facilitated by a sense of color and composition that makes his photographs feel like vivid memories--Polidori delicately peels away the patina of daily living and reveals the juxtapositions that create a city's identity. His photographs define the idea of faded grandeur. In this city the peddler lives where the countess once resided; children dance and tumble where merchants conducted their business. Each photograph is a discovery and a fragment of the city's biography" (the publisher).
