25 De Noviembre, Ernesto Bazan’s fourth monograph about Cuba, is a powerful and poignant photographic portrait of the island and its people in the days, months and years following the death of Fidel Castro on November 25, 2016. This deeply personal book documents Bazan’s emotional return journey to his adopted, spiritual home following ten years of painful exile. On January 6, 2006, Bazan was (banned) forced out from the country when he refused to give up teaching his workshops. He left Cuba with his wife, Sissy, and their twin boys Pietro and Stefano, on July 4, 2016, ironically Independence Day in the US.

The book includes color photographs of found objects and collaged images that Bazan collected while walking the streets of Havana. Peppered throughout the book are handwritten personal comments and quotes from Fidel Castro and Che Guevara, Cuban authors Virgilio Piñera, Heberto Padilla, Guillermo Cabrera Infante, Leonardo Padura, and Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rose Kennedy, the widow of Bobby Kennedy. The quotes, which reference topics such as censorship, government control, complicity, fear, shame and regret provide a running color commentary alongside the images that brings another dimension to the monograph.
