The great Spanish tenor José Cura has appeared on the world’s great stages, from the Met and the Lyric Opera to San Francisco Opera. When not hitting high notes onstage, Maestro Cura aims a camera at the world he travels. Espontáneas is the first book to present his captivating images to the public.
The more than ninety photographs featured here document Cura’s considerable travels around the world, as well as the people he encountered along the way. The countenances captured by his lens reflect the full gamut of the human condition: dignity, poverty, old age, and loneliness. Accompanied by descriptions written by Cura and other authors, this volume presents a panorama of faces seen through the eyes of an extraordinary talent.
