Harvey, David Alan
Divided Soul (signed)
David Alan Harvey's "Divided Soul" is a collection of more than 100 color photographs and personal texts representing his 30-year journey throughout the Spanish and Portuguese diaspora.
Exploring the exuberance and incongruities of Hispanic life, Harvey looks into the "divided soul" of the Spanish-speaking world, a world where tradition and ritual are inherent in everyday life. Harvey's images encompass much that is evocative and often contradictory. There are images of pulsating street carnivals in Cuba, African tribal ceremonies in Brazil, an erotic disco in Lisbon, birthday 'fiestas' and First Communion ceremonies in Mexico.
Harvey's gift for anticipating the fleeting yet revealing moment results in photographs that combine a direct documentary style and emotional mood with his own powerful, personal vision.
