    Following on the success of the first edition of "Cuba Then (2014)", this revised and expanded edition introduces dozens of dazzling new images that build on the allure of Cuba, past and present.Since the first edition of Cuba Then was published in 2014, there have been several seismic shifts: President Obama moved to normalize relations, a US embassy was opened, Fidel Castro died, and the current administration announced plans to freeze relations again. This intensified interest in Cuba has seen record numbers of Americans traveling there. It is only fitting to release a revised and expanded edition of Cuba Then to satisfy the demand for this growing interest in the country"s history and visual culture.With fifty newly selected vintage photographs and pieces of ephemera from the collection of Ramiro Fernández, the most extensive archive of Cuban photography outside of the island nation, Cuba Then is a tribute to the lost eras of style, glamor, ebullience, intrigue, and upheaval. The more than 300 images here span the entire spectrum of photographic history, including rare daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, cartes-de-visite, and stereograms.
