Biographical Note

Ramiro A. Fernández began collecting photographs of Cuba in 1981.  Inspired by his grandmother, Hortensia Lizaso Machado, Fernández built his collection to document aspects of Cuban life, history, art, and culture before they disappeared. His collection includes a mixture of family, tourist, and professional photos from the late 1800s through the Cuban Revolution.

A native of Cuba, Fernández moved with his family to Palm Beach County, Florida, in 1960. He graduated from Florida State University in 1974 and worked as a photo editor for Time, Inc. for 25 years. He is a Contributing Photo Editor to Americas Quarterly. In 2007, Fernández published I Was Cuba: Treasures from the Ramiro Fernández Collection (Chronicle Books).
