PHOTOGRAPHING HABANA LIBRE
by Christopher Sweet
Two pretty girls sitting in the back seat of a convertible, sipping cocktails, cruising along the seafront of a coastal city. It could be South Beach or Ipanema, but no, it is the Malecon, and we catch a glimpse of the new Cuba, a work in progress, as envisioned by Michael Dweck
in his new book of photographs, Habana Libre
(Damiani, $65), with text and interviews by William Westbrook.
