Michael Eastman's Photography of Havana

Eastman has established himself as one of the leading and most notable photographers of our time. He has spent 4 decades travelling and documenting diverse exteriors far and wide from New Orleans to Cuba to Paris.

Eastman, however, is most known for his exploration of architectural decay. His monumental prints, which he insists on developing himself, are full of color and unparalleled photographic texture.

Due out in September 2011, Michael Eastman's photos of Cuba that have won international acclaim will be published in a book entitled Havana. I can't wait. Take a look at these images. They send shivers down my spine.

The book designer, Mark Melnick, has started a blog appropriately called The Road to Havana in order to document the process of putting together this soon-to-be work of art, if you care to follow along. I know I will be.
