Carlos Garaicoa : Photography as Intervention, Paperback / softback Book

Carlos Garaicoa : Photography as Intervention Paperback / softback


It is the first comprehensive overview of the photographic work of contemporary Cuban artist Carlos Garaicoa.

Photographers are generally witnesses to what goes on around them; some risk their lives to get involved, while others prefer the detached record afforded by a telephoto lens.

The work of Carlos Garaicoa, a self-taught artist who developed an early interest in photography in his native Havana, reflects the experience of an eye-witness who is actively involved; it is testimony, but it is also accusation; insubordination, and also desperation.

For over twenty years, most of his work - regardless of the technique used - has involved intervention based on documentary photography.

His approach is sometimes cynical, sometimes constructive; but it never leaves us unmoved.

Rather than offering a general survey of Garaicoa's work, this volume - the first devoted to his photography - seeks to highlight the key role played by documentary and photography in his outlook as an artist.
