    Bronze in Book/Documentary

Tria Giovan first traveled to Cuba in 1990. She returned twelve times in six years, shooting over 25,000 images. She photographed homes and businesses, city streets, landscapes and the people, creating a body of work that captured the complexities of Cuban day-to-day life. Twenty years after the publication of her first book of Cuban photographs, Cuba: The Elusive Island, Giovan has returned to these images, rediscovering in them a record of a vanished Cuba. October 2017, DAMIANI published The Cuba Archive. Photographs were featured in Cuba Is (2017-18), at the Annenberg Space for Photography.
