Capture Photography Festival: Cuba – Twilight of the Revolution Launch
April 18 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Cuba – Twilight of the Revolution, a photobook by Alistair Henning, is a capsule of nostalgia for a recent moment already passed—a moment heavy with the burden of clinging to a past that seemed to forestall all possible futures. In January 2012 Fidel Castro was still clinging to power, while Cuba’s people grew increasingly impatient for meaningful and positive change. Henning documented this transitional time using the Hipstamatic app on an iPhone 4s. Although extremely low-fi by contemporary standards, he feels that “many of these photos would not have been possible to make using a larger, more conspicuous camera.”
Henning has worked closely with specialty publisher Out of the Phone to create a signature limited edition half-linen hardcover using tritone offset printing. The launch includes an artist interview and book signing. Complimentary refreshments available.
