  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Puro is Cuban slang for a cigar… Alegría is Spanish for happiness… for Graciela both always seemed essential to her being.

    The Spirit of the Revolution series documents the generation of Cubans that saw the dramatic changes of 1959 as young adults. They have a strength of character and underlying humour that transcends the struggle that has defined their lives.

    James Sparshatt went to Cuba in 1999 and was so taken with the island and its people that he returned 15 times in the following 7 years. His images are largely of the music and dance and innate rhythm of the island but he also found himself drawn to an older generation that had been old enough to understand the revolution in 1959, that lived through 40 years of tumultuous and often difficult times and who now watch with some bemusement the return of the outside world in wave upon wave of tourists.

    James Sparshatt’s photographs of the “Revolutionary” generation of Cubans capture their grit and indominatable spirit.
    The work is available printed directly on to brushed aluminium, and on paper as silver gelatin or palladium platinum prints.

His palladium platinum prints are produced in collaboration with specialist platinum printer Max Caffell of 31 Studio. 31 Studio are recognised as masters of this sought after printing technique. They are also the printers of choice of Sebastiao Salgado, the estate of Henri Lartigue, and many other photographic luminaries.
