Through Foreign Eyes, Part Two: International Photographers and Filmmakers in the 1960s

This month, two photography exhibitions focusing on Cuba before, during, and after the Revolution are on view in New York City. The first, Constantino Arias, opened last week at the Center for Cuban Studies; the second, Cuba in Revolution, opens this Friday, September 24 at the International Center of Photography. With that in mind, we asked Grethel Morell, a Havana-based historian of Cuban photography, for an overview of foreign photographers and their work in documenting the early years of the Revolution. Part One was published yesterday; Part Two appears here. Morell’s essay appears courtesy of the Cuban network Cubarte.
