Cuba, This Moment, Exactly So
Cuba, This Moment, Exactly So is exactly the right book for travelers in this moment. The immersive coffee table book drops its readers right into the heart and soul of Cuba, the next best thing to traveling there in person. Drawing on more than 50 trips to the island over the past 20 years, award-winning photographer Lorne Resnick presents over 250 passionate and heartwarming black-and-white and color photographs vividly depicting Cuba, the "Pearl of the Antilles." Interleaved with Resnick’s photos are 30 poignant micro-stories by Brian Andreas. Pico Iyer, who has written a novel about Cuba, introduces the book.
Light and Dust
Behind every photograph in the luxurious photo collection Light and Dust, Images and Stories from the Wild of East Africa is the prodigious passion of Italian photographer Federico Veronesi. His love for the Masai Mara drove Veronesi to his vocations as a wildlife guide, environmental activist and photographer -- and also to long mornings hiding in the backseat of his car watching antelopes, exhausting days of searching and dark nights of camping, “feeling like the only human on earth.” His photography searches for the still moments of “now” that overshadow Veronesi’s deep concerns for the area’s conservation.
The Red Sea
Kindly contributed by photographer Jeffrey Rotman, whose work has appeared in National Geographic, Life, Time and The New York Times Magazine. In his recent book, The Last Fisherman, Rotman's remarkable portraiture brings us face-to-face with increasingly fragile ocean ecosystems and the effects of illegal fishing and overfishing.
  I packed my rucksack, sleeping bag, and photography gear, and crossed the ocean to reach the Red Sea. Pictures of tropical reefs were well known to me by that time, but I looked at them contemptuously. They were unbearably easy to shoot, unbearably beautiful in their composition.
