“Love in the Time of Castro” cover

“Love in the Time of Castro” cover

<em>The New York Times Magazine</em>, New York, New York, 2000

Description

The cover had to present two stories, both of which spoke to the personal drama of politics and history between Cuba and the United States. The concept was to photograph the ocean that separates Key West and Cuba—a physical, political and emotional boundary. The type floats in the water, expressing the danger and depth of that water. The type references memory by being a transparent layer. This solved the problem of conveying the message of the story with a headline that did not impose on the poetry of the photograph.
