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.
