    About The Work

    Andrea Robbins and Max Becher chose the Cohiba cigar as their subject because they were drawn to the hypocrises the product exposes wthin global politics. In the centralized, socialist goverment of Cuba, the Cohiba cigar is made of the finest quality ingredients and at the highest level of production; consequently, their prices have soared, attracting the attention of the rest of the world's elite. Using their signature wry humor, the duo turns this photograph into a compelling study, one pointed at the power consumerism wields over international relations.
