商品の説明

内容説明

"Habana Libre": Here is a stunning contemporary exploration of the privileged class in a classless society: a secret life within Cuba. Michael Dweck's photographs are exhilarating, sensual and provocative, with a sexy and hypnotic visual rhythm. This is a face of Cuba never before photographed, never reported in Western media and never acknowledged openly within Cuba itself. It is a socially connected world of glamorous models and keenly observant artists, filmmakers, musicians and writers captured in an elaborate dance of survival and success. Havana is seen as the cultural center of the island, a mass of contrary images, raw and tender, barren and alive, musical and lyrical and fearful...sometimes all in an evening. Here too are surprising interviews with sons of Castro and Guevara as well as many others who define the creative culture of Cuba and give it texture and substance. "Habana Libre" is not a media-fabricated Cuban postcard of crumbling mansions or old American cars, but a revealing and contemporary work by an artist adept at capturing the quiet gesture, the sensuous eye and the proud and provocative pose of that most romantic of contradictions: Cuba.

著者について

Michael Dweck is a visual artist known for his suggestive photographic style. His first major photographic work was published in volume form as The End: Montauk, N.Y., in 2004, and was featured in several exhibitions and art fairs that year. In his follow-up to that success, in 2008, Dweck returned with his new project: Mermaids. The exhibition and accompanying volume featured a dazzling array of photographs of the female nude submerged in water. His photographs were first showcased at Sotheby's, New York, in 2003, in their first solo exhibition for a living photographer. Since then, his work has become part of important international art collections and has been shown in major solo gallery exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London, Tokyo, Hamburg, Brussels and Knokke. Michael Dweck lives in New York City and Montauk.

Dweckの新作は基本的にはこれまでの「島」ものなのだが、舞台はCubaであり、非常にエキゾチックな風景と人々が写り込み全体にこれまでになく「濃い」テイスト。しかしDweckらしい現地の人々の生活に入って一体化したかのようなintimateな美しさは健在。本作を特異にしているのは、被写体の人々が、社会主義国家Cubaの中で特権的にリッチなライフスタイルを送っているグループである点で、しかもその特権は文化的なつながりからのコネクションが大きな役割を果たしている。こういった人々はこれまであまり表に出てこなかったはずだ。Cubaは音楽、文学などでも評価が高いわけだが、その財産は資本主義国家に評価されてこそ意味を生じるわけで、被写体の彼・彼女達には人生を楽しむ積極性と、その快楽の持つ矛盾への自覚が見え隠れして、それ故に刹那的な輝きを増している。巻末には彼らへのインタヴューもあり、写真集としのみならず社会的な資料価値さえ持っている。12月にはBlitzで展覧会もあるので期待している。

Communist elites 2011/11/7
投稿者 amuchahonra - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
Everyone who buys this book should be aware that the images portrayed in the book were produced and allowed to be published clearly because of the author's relationship with the cuban elite, which includes Fidel Castro's own son and whose photos are in this book. Let's be clear that cuban photographers are not allowed to sell their art or negotiate publishing contracts in or out of their country, at least not without the approval of the government. The title of the book alone is designed to grab your attention, as it should be, but the reason it grabs it is because of its irony. No one in Havana is free, so we look inside the book to see who or what they are talking about... and there they are, the beautiful people of Cuba acting free, playing up to the powers that be so they can get some credit in their favor from the government's elite; in this case Alex Castro, one of the many children Castro has managed to keep under his rule, by allowing them privileges and yes, freedoms that no other cubans are allowed like publishing their work in a foreign book.
If you still decide to buy the book, you should do it being fully aware that you are like the tourists who visit Cuba knowing that they are enjoying all the privileges and resources that the natives can't, and that's just not right. Mr. Dweck must be one of those tourists whose camera only goes to the places and people he's told, because if he ever detoured from them, his book would have never been called Habana Libre.

Gorgeous Photography But Not An Accurate Depiction of Cuba 2012/10/26
投稿者 Lynda E. - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
I gave 5 stars to this book because 1- the photography is pretty incredible and 2-it is very mind-blowing by and in itself that Michael Dweck was able to "infiltrate" himself in the very tight circle of the Cuban elite. It is also true that there's no freedom of almost any sort in Cuba. Most of the people live in the worst poverty and, as a country and society, Cuba has not evolved past the 1960s, which is horrible. However, I do give kudos to the author for portraying this part of Cuba is such a compelling way even if it's just for purposes of showing the world that there is a tiny group of people who live amazingly well and not according to Fidel's fake communist credo (which clearly does not apply to him or his family).

Habana Libre: A Surprising Pictorial Expose 2011/9/30
投稿者 M. Brown - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
I picked up Michael Dweck's book, Habana Libre, as a gift for a friend. I thought a nice coffee table book would be a great house warming present and might give him the appearance of being cultured. A day after I gave it to him, he called me and asked if I had looked through it.

That night, over coffee, we waded through the images, read a few of the interviews, and just drank it in. I don't know much about Cuba, but none of what we saw matched what we had imagined. That song from Rod Stewart kept going through my head: "Every Picture Tells A Story." That was what was happening in this book. Beautiful photographs of beautiful people living and laughing in a life surrounded by art and culture (yes, I see the irony) filled the pages.

The book is a feast for the eyes and will make you want to learn more about this hidden society existing inside Communist Cuba.

cool, hip & timeless. 2011/10/10
投稿者 Davey - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
I ordered this book after reading an article about it in the NY Times. This is the first one of Mr. Dweck's books that I've purchased, and it certainly won't be the last.

The quality of the book itself is stunning. The paper is heavy, strong and feels like something God would want the Bible printed on. Just a quality production/print job.

The art is stunning. Each photo feels candid and warm. I have no interest in art but this is something I'll be showing to visitors of my home for decades, its just a great piece. My only image of cuba is from godfather 2, so getting insight into a niche lifestyle in cuba was refreshing.

The book just emits a cool vibe. I yearn to be part of it. Mr. Dweck captures an elite inner circle in such phenominal way. No photograph feels scripted, the book just flows.

Habana Libre is just a great piece of work. It's cool, hip and insightful. Kudos to Mr. Dweck for gaining access to a group of people in an un-accessible country.

Misleading and inaccurate 2012/1/4
投稿者 Tonata - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
Yes, this is a beautiful book, full of beautiful pictures of beautiful, fancy, joyful people. And yes, you'll find them in Cuba. So, if what you are looking for is an exotic coffee table book, you should buy it. There would be no mistake. Your friends will enjoy it. Be aware, though, that all these people and their friends make less than 1 % of Cubans, most of which do not even have any idea that that kind of life is possible in their country.
In spite of what the author and the interviewees say, it is decay, abandon, ruins, tackiness, and scarcity what prevails in Havana, even in Vedado, one of its most elitist neighborhoods, not to say in the countryside. Even a trip to Varadero, for instance, the most advertised beach in Cuba, cannot hide from the view of those interested in Cuban reality the absolute decay in which real Cubans live, the old trucks in which Cubans have to travel while they watch envious the air-conditioned buses in which tourists, visiting Cuban exiles, and the Cuban elite shown in this book, go to the beach or to the countryside.
Had the author interviewed other people, for instance those underground artists that one of the interviewed mentioned, he would have known about the menace of political prison just for daring to say what Cuban governants consider inappropriate, as happened to Gorki Avila and several others.
This book shows a Cuba that a small group of privileged people secretly keep for themselves, egoistically ignoring the harsh reality of their fellow countrymen. Yyou could also say a Cuba that several others in Cuba wish for themselves as well, but definitively not the Cuba than most of Cubans live, know or, sadly, would ever live or know. And not the Cuba that several thousands of Cubans flew away from, not only searching for better lives, as the author implies, but for political freedom. Me among them.
That the author was amazed at discovering Cuban beauties and a glamorous lifestyle is logical. That cannot offend anybody. What I consider, however, extremely offensive is the comments made by some of the interviewees, purposefully ignoring not only the reality above described but also their own past life experiences, which apparently they prefer to forget and condone in order to enjoy their present privileges, some of them derived of their condition of Cuban artists, a condition that the international market pays well for.
