Let’s take a break from all of the Terry Richardson hype for a minute and get really raw. Michael Dweck recently published “Habana Libre,” a collection of his photos documenting the social life in modern day Cuba. Dweck’s subject matter penetrates the vibrant social scene of a society that has been politically ostracized for decades. His use of the monochromatic medium adds the perfect flavor to the subject matter.
