photo-eye is pleased to host Ernesto Bazan, author of Al Campo and BazanCuba for a booksigning and artist talk. In 2008, his publishing house BazanPhotos Publishing, released BazanCuba featuring work made during his fourteen years living on and photographing on the island. In May 2009, the book was awarded Best Book of the Year at the New York Photo Festival. In 2011 Bazan published Al Campo, an in-depth color exploration of life in the Cuban countryside.

Ernesto Bazan was born in Palermo on the island of Sicily in 1959. From 1992 to 2006, Bazan lived in and photographed the island of Cuba, documenting the unique time in Cuban history called the Special Period. This body of work has given him the privilege to win some of the world's most prestigious photographic awards, among them The W. Eugene Smith Grant; The Mother Jones Foundation for Photojournalism [Mother Jones International Fund for Documentary Photography], the Dorothea Lang - Paul Taylor prize at Duke University, North Carolina, the World Press Photo award and fellowships from the Alicia Patterson Foundation and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.
