In 2003 American Photo magazine named Gil Garcetti one of the nation's master photographers. His two critically acclaimed Balcony Press books Iron: Erecting the Walt Disney Concert Hall and Frozen Music have been praised for their evocation of the poetry of architecture and the soul of those entrusted with its construction. Garcetti's new book of photographs Dance in Cuba is a visual chronicle of Cuba's little-known, yet extremely vibrant, dance culture. Working with Alicia Alonso, Director of the Ballet Nacional de Cuba, Garcetti enjoyed unprecedented access to classical ballet and contemporary dance studios.
Garcetti's dramatic duotone photographs capture the folk dancing and flamenco of Cuba's dance heritage as well as the thrilling modern street performances of Cuban daily life. Dance in Cuba is Cuba as you have never seen it before--an island alive with dance!
