Havana: The Revolutionary Moment: Photographs by Burt Glinn

  February 9 - April 4, 2004

This exhibition features a unique collection of never-before-seen photographs by veteran Magnum photographer Burt Glinn, recording Fidel Castro's historic entry into Havana. Organized and circulated by Umbrage Editions, New York, the images are full of the revolutionary fervor and idealistic anticipation that characterized that moment in Cuban history.

Support for the exhibition and publication were provided by Sidney Kimmel, Andrew S. Karsch, the Southeast Museum of Photography and the Fototeca de Havana.


Glinn has been President of the American Society of Media Photographers and has served as both President and Chairman of the Board for the prestigious photojournalist agency Magnum. He is a recipient of Matthew Brady Award and numerous others for both his journalistic and commercial photography, including the Best Book of the Photographic Reporting from Abroad from the Overseas Press Club and the Best Print Ad of the Year from the Art Director's Club of New York.


A publication accompanying the exhibition includes essays by Rafael Acosta de Arriba and Nan Richardson.
