PHOTOGRAPHY REVIEW; Stylists Of the Epic And the Surreal
By HOLLAND COTTER
Published: September 7, 2001
CUBA, shaped like a scythe, lies in the Caribbean 90 miles off Florida. For centuries it has been a kind of fantasy island to the outside world. Columbus thought it was the prettiest place he had ever seen. Later adventurers went there for gold and found it: ''white gold,'' sugar. With African slaves to harvest the cane, they lived like grandees. By the 19th century and well into the 20th, the capital city, Havana, with its thick sea walls and rococo facades, was a cosmopolitan magnet for businessmen, artists and tourists alike. Its casinos were lavish; its night life was tireless. It was where you went to be extravagant, liberated and bad.
Even the moralizing political liberation of the 1950's and 60's had its glamour. The revolutionary troops, with their scruffy-chic beards and berets, were popular international heroes for a time. And they were led by two genuine superstars: the baby-faced Fidel Castro and the Byronic Che Guevara. When their pictures appeared in the news, readers alternately flinched and swooned. With global capitalism triumphant, yet another fantasy is on the horizon: the revival of the island as the vacation spot it once was, a semitropical dream come true.
But what does Cuba look like from the inside, to people born there and defined by its shores? That story comes in many versions. And some of them are told by art, as can be seen in two exhibitions in New York at present: ''Epic Photography of the Cuban Revolution'' at the the Cuban Art Space in Chelsea, and ''Shifting Tides: Cuban Photography After the Revolution'' at Grey Art Gallery, New York University.
''Epic Photography,'' organized by Sandra Levinson, director of the Cuban Art Space, is a selection of documentary pictures by a few remarkable photographers who were on the spot when the revolution ignited, and the emotional heat it generated crackles through their work.
The drama actually starts with a 1955 portrait by the Cuban-born Osvald Salas (1914-1992) of a glum, exiled Fidel Castro dressed in a natty suit and tie and strolling through Central Park. There's also a second New York portrait by Mr. Salas's son Roberto, dating from 1959, by which time everything had changed. Mr. Castro, now prime minister of the Cuban Revolution, wears army fatigues and smiles and gestures with a diva's grace as he addresses the United Nations.
Meanwhile, in Havana, the photojournalist Ernesto Fernández had caught the revolution as it happened on Jan. 1, 1959, in an extraordinary picture of clean-cut students and office clerks carrying guns for the first time.
With such images, the concept of epic photography kicks in. It is nowhere more effective than in Raúl Corrales's panoramic shot from 1960 of a brigade of revolutionary cavalrymen with rippling Cuban flags, advancing toward the camera at full gallop. The tableau, which could be from a 19th-century photograph, a Diego Rivera mural or a John Ford western, has the pumped-up grandeur of history painting....
ERNESTO FERNANDEZ, LA HABANA 1939
Photographer Ernesto Fernández Receives Cuba’s National Prize for Visual Arts2011
Cuban photographer Ernesto Fernández Nogueras received the National Prize for Visual Arts 2011 [Premio Nacional de Artes Plásticas 2011] in Havana in honor of the breadth and quality of his work, which combines aesthetic experience and testimonial values.
Fernández Nogueras became the second “master of the lens” be distinguished with this prize, awarded by Cuba’s Ministry of Culture and the National Council of Fine Arts.
Fernández Nogueras initially devoted his talents in photography as a war correspondent in Venezuela (1959), at the battle of Playa Girón (1961), in Angola (1981-1983), and in Nicaragua (1983), publishing his photographs in magazines and journals such as Cuba Internacional y Revolución. As critics indicate, throughout his career, he created a “visual repertoire that breaks down the boundaries between photojournalism and the photo essay.” The award-winning photographer has exhibited his works in galleries in Canada, Cuba, Denmark, France, Italy, Mexico, the United Kingdom, and the United States, among others. Fernández has received numerous awards, including the Interpress Photo Award (USSR, 1985), the Iberoamerican Photography Award of Harvard University (Boston, 2000), and Premio OLORUM Iberoamericano (La Habana, 2005).
The prestigious photographer has collaborated with the Casa de las Américas since 1964, where has provided important testimony of theatre festivals, the Casa de las Américas Literary Prize, as well as other celebrations at the institution.
Award Ernesto Fernández, National Award of Fine Arts Issue #83 Dec - Feb 2012 Cuba, Havana
Israel Castellanos León Ernesto Fernández Nogueras (Havana, 1939) has been accredited the National Award of Fine Arts for the oeuvre of a lifetime. He is the second photographer to earn this recognized distinction conferred annually; and, since 1994, by the National Council of Fine Arts to a working artist from and living in Cuba. The jury, comprised of fifteen members and its chairman, René Francisco Rodríguez (prizewinner of the previous edition), recognized Ernesto Fernández¿s contribution to the development and growth of Cuba¿s fine arts. In his more than four decades of professional and artistic work, the artist achieved an elevated mastery of a visual language that allowed him to create a substantial quantity of photographs and series that blurred the boundaries between journalist and artist-with-the-lens, between photojournalism and the photographic essay. Within the genre of the documentary and the poetics of the "decisive instant" - and without losing the aesthetic sense which charges an image with artistic value ¿ Ernesto Fernández has explored an extensive thematic field, of which his work on epic nature stands out. His legacy is an extensive visual-historic catalogue that has earned him to be represented in anthological and retrospective exhibitions of Cuban photography, in his country as well as internationally. Additionally, his work has been reproduced in important specialized publications. With several international photography awards to his name, this draftsman and designer has been recognized with the Distinction for National Culture. Some of his photographic productions are found treasured within relevant institutional collections, such as: Fototeca de Cuba and Casa de las Americas. Next year, Havana¿s Museum of Fine Arts will host a solo exhibition of Ernesto Fernández as a part of the award he has just received.
Ernesto Fernandez has been for many years the favorite and personal photographer of Fidel Castro. These negatives have been filed for more than 40 years, until these photos were printed and hand signed by author Ernesto Fernandez This photo beside being an excelente Che Guevara portrait from the first days of the Cuban revolution, is a real historical jewel for every collector or biographer of the cuban revolution
Alberto Korda in interview wiht Ciro Bianchi Ross, in Paris on May 25, 1999 said:
" Ernesto Fernández ha estado en todos los sucesos importantes de la historia de la revolución, desde 1959: la limpia del Escambray, Playa Girón, la lucha contra bandidos y piratas, las microbrigadas, la guerra de Angola... Raúl Corrales, dice, "es el más grande de todos nosotros, es el autor de las mejores fotos que se han hecho en Cuba. Y ahí tiene usted, limpiaba zapatos hasta el día en que agarró una cámara y dejó a todo el mundo con la boca abierta. No hay más que ver sus reportajes en la revista Carteles y lo que ha hecho después del triunfo de la revolución"
