Notice biographique

Zone du contenu et de la structure

Portée et contenu

Andrew Giel visited Cuba as a tourist 10 times between September 1955 and December 1959, traveling as far as Trinidad in Santi Spíritus. Fifty years later, Mr. Giel printed 8 x 10 enlargements from the original transparencies. Those prints are found in this collection. They include views from across the island, including Havana, Trinidad, and Santiago de Cuba. The collection also includes color prints of the black and white photography and photographic reproductions of Cuban postcards from the 1950s.

The 1955 slides were made with an Argus C4 camera and the later slides with a Leica IIIF.

Mode de classement

The photographs in Box 1 are arranged chronologically and numerically in Box 2 in an effort to maintain Mr. Giel's original order.
