Since 1980 Miami architect Raul L. Rodriguez has been photographing Havana’s Necropolis Cristobal Colon, a cemetery featuring some of the finest funerary art in the world. Rodriguez has focused on the cemetery’s mausoleums, which represent a wide range of nineteenth and twentieth century architectural styles.
With its extensive grid of streets and its tombs for everyone from leading industrialists to labor unionists, Necropolis Cristobal Colon is truly a “city of the dead” that reflects the broader patterns of Havana’s development.
The exhibition includes approximately forty of Rodriguez’s large color prints.
