It is sometimes said that Cuba is easy to photograph: focus a camera anywhere on the island and a marvelous picture will result. In this volume, photographers Daniel Spehr and Kathrin Schulthess--who have also produced similar saturation-job portraits of Berlin (Made in Berlin, 2011) and Buenos Aires (Buenos Aires, 2008)--take up that challenge, photographing everything from tile patterns, building facades, iron railings and washing lines to floor mosaics, door buzzers, fire hydrants and public phones. From Havana and the fields of Holguín to Camaguey and Trinidad, Cubanísimo offers the most thorough account of Cuban life imaginable.
