About the Book
At the end of his first year of candid photography on the streets of the UK and Cuba, Gianfranco Gentile (aka 'stop_and_search' on Instagram) is proud to present you with this very cool collection of his best colour street photography work so far. In his own words: "However bright the day, I always suspect I'm not seeing it all. So I often stop the light and search it for what's missing. Sometimes I capture it."
I'm an Italian 40 something who's been living in London, UK, since 2001 and who has in recent years developed an obsession for street photography. As you can see on my website, most of my candid shots are from the streets of the city where I live. However, I try to travel as much as I can and capture the extraordinary in the ordinary in other places too. Last month, April 2017, I visited Cuba for the first time, together with my husband. I thought it would be nice to organize the very best shots from that trip into my first ever photo book, "Cuba 2017", which is what prompted me to create a Blurb account earlier today. I hope that this is just the first of a long series of photo books and that you enjoy them.
