Description
 
Photographer Engels applies almost two decades of experience to a city with a guarded past. Hidden for 40 years behind a veil of political intrigue, Havana reveals itself to Engelsí lens as a metropolis whose architectural glory is a historical phenomenon. Having survived economic turmoil & a revolution, the city serves as a metaphor for the resilience of civic endeavor. The 1959 revolution cut Cuba off from the West, but at the same time preserved a century of built substance & style through the accident of financial stagnation. Five epochs of architectural style have survived to the present day. From the majesty of colonial city palaces to the hope of heroic modernism, the photos show a city in transition, a microcosm of architecture through the ages.
