Vanishing Cuba is about capturing the past, present, and future of Cuba, and even more so, about capturing the Soul of Cuba. Michael's love affair with Cuba and the Cuban people clearly comes through in this compelling and beautifully produced book.

This long-awaited large-format coffee table book is available in the Silver Edition, the Deluxe Edition and the collector series Reserve Edition, limited to just 300 copies.
