Soul of a Country

Twenty-four trips to Cuba and tens of thousands of photographs were the inspiration for Michael Chinnici’s photobook “Vanishing Cuba” (Red Octopus Publishing). The 348-page coffee-table book includes 300 images documenting Cuba’s reemergence from 60 years of isolation. The collection is intended to convey the soul of Cuba, and Chinnici’s love affair with the country and its people shines through. Chinnici is a New York-based documentary photographer and CEO of Photo Workshop Adventures, a photo tour company.
