About The Artist:

Michael Eastman is a self-taught American photographer. Eastman's works often reflect his engagement with history, nostalgia, and decay. Over the course of his lengthy career, Allen has explored notions of memory and beauty in his large-scale photographic works. He is particularly interested in capturing time-stained facades and interiors. His approach is interesting insofar as he addresses his subject with a remarkable even-handedness. Buildings of both great and nominal importance are afforded similar treatment and study.

Eastman's interiors are often noted for their painterly quality. His masterful use of color and texture conjure visions of past grandeur and stories untold. Stuccoed walls, crumbling ceilings, and faded upholstery, enveloped in the thick patina of time, are carefully documented. Eastman revels in the beauty of Cuba's forgotten interiors, ''the colors were fading, with just a little bit of life and a little bit of glory still there. And the narratives that come to mind when you look at those interiors are extraordinary.'' Eastman began visiting Cuba in the 1990s. He was granted access through the Center for Cuban Studies (New York).

Eastman's work has been exhibited at the Tampa Museum of Art, the University of Wyoming, the McKissick Museum, Columbia, South Carolina, and the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. His artwork is in a number of collections, including the Art Institute of Chicago, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Museum Of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Polaroid Collection.

"Three Fans, Havana" is a richly colored chromogenic print. It pictures the deteriorating facade of a building in Havana, Cuba. The lower portion had likely housed a store or restaurant while the uppermost register, dotted with hanging laundry and plants, still shows signs of life. These signs of life suggest that despite, and perhaps in spite of the overall sense of disrepair and neglect, this is someone's home and perhaps most importantly, it is deserving of our attention.
