Photographs by Jeffrey Milstein.
The Monacelli Press, 2010. 128 pp., 80 color illustrations, 9x6".
Trained as an architect, Jeffrey Milstein has an eye for symmetry, line, color, and detail. Focusing on streetscape and street life, he has created a unique portrait of Cuba that delves deep into the soul of that country.
As Milstein explained in an article for Creative Review, 'I have always been drawn to old industrial architecture- the decay and the sculptural shapes. I love to wander around these abandoned places with their history, and layers of old peeling paint and newer graffiti and paint ball splattering. It is a reflection on how everything eventually decays, no matter how hard we try, everything including our own bodies slowly decay, and yet it can be very beautiful.'
