Alex Harris’s photographic work recently opened in a landmark exhibit at the Getty Museum show, A Revolutionary Project: Cuba from Evans to Now. Harris’s 18 large scale photographs are featured alongside those of Walker Evans, and two other contemporary photographers.
A student of Walker Evans at Yale, Harris is the author of, among other books, The Idea of Cuba (University of New Mexico Press/Center for Documentary Studies), a powerful evocation of life on the island and an original meditation on the nature of documentary photography.
