James Sparshatt's work reflects that vibrancy and intimately captures the beauty and spirit of his subjects. He has been exhibited in New York, London, Spain, Cuba and across the UK. His 2006 exhibition at the Royal National Theatre was described in the Sunday Telegraph as "a dazzling collection of black and white images…".
James' first book, Cuba Land of Spirit, was published in October 2006. He is artist in residence at Capital Culture in London.
Ernesto Fernandez is one of the four great photographers of the Revolutionary period of Cuba. Alongside Korda, Salas and Corrales, Fernandez documented the heady days of the Triumph of the Revolution and continued to photograph Fidel Castro, Che Guevara and other leading lights of the new system, including some wonderfully intimate studies of Alicia Alonso, Cuba's greatest ballerina. He continues to photograph Cuba and to teach a new generation of artists.
We have recently received a further selection of prints by Ernesto Fernandez, these include iconic images of Fidel and Che Guevara – for private Viewings please contact Arts Coordinator Rachael Dalzell.
