Shifting Tides: Cuban Photography After the Revolution

Shifting Tides: Cuban Photography after the Revolution highlights the art of three generations of Cuban photographers who have captured through their images a legacy of a country and its people. Shifting Tides explores the vitality of Cuban photographic traditions since Fidel Castro’s overthrow of the Batista regime in 1959. Heroic photographs of an impassioned Fidel or a noble Che Guevara gazing into a glorious revolutionary future are among the most familiar images propagated by the new regime. Beginning with these iconic images, Shifting Tides charts the evolution of Cuban photography, from images of the 1960s and 1970s that celebrate the common man, through the experimental reclamations of personal history realized in the 1980s and 1990s, to the intensely individualized conceptual investigations of the present.
