In 2003 American Photo magazine named Gil Garcetti one of the nationâ€™s master photographers. His two critically acclaimed Balcony Press books, Iron: Erecting the Walt Disney Concert Hall and Frozen Music, have been praised for their evocation of the poetry of the iconic Los Angeles buildingâ€™s architecture and the soul of those who built it. Garcettiâ€™s book of photographs, Dance in Cuba, is a visual chronicle of Cubaâ€™s little-known, yet extremely vibrant, dance culture. Working with Alicia Alonso, Director of the Ballet Nacional de Cuba, Garcetti enjoyed unprecedented access to classical ballet and contemporary dance studios. Garcettiâ€™s dramatic duotone photographs capture the folk dancing and flamenco of Cubaâ€™s dance heritage as well as the thrilling modern street performances of daily life there. Dance in Cuba is Cuba as you have never seen it beforeâ€”an island alive with dance!
