The Argentine tenor José Cura (*1962) sings regularly on the world’s great opera stages, from the Met and Chicago’s Lyric Opera to La Scala and the Royal Opera House in London’s Covent Garden. In addition to his prolific career as a tenor, conductor, composer, and mentor to young singers, Cura is also a gifted photographer. Espontáneas—Photographs by José Cura is the first book to present his captivating images to the public.
The more than ninety photographs featured here document Cura’s extensive 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 epigrams by Cura himself and quotations from other authors, this volume presents a panorama of faces seen through the eyes of an extraordinary talent.


“I have been interested in photography ever since I can remember …” José Cura
