Author: Alberto Korda, my father, best known for his photo “Guerrillero Heróico” the photo that made a man’s life a legend.
My father was one of the few cuban photojournalists responsible for capturing the world’s attention with the Cuban Revolution Propaganda. He followed the Cuban leaders around and became Fidel Castro's personal photographer for more than a decade (request from Fidel Castro, who was one of his admirers). My father’s passion and exceptional skills as a photographer made every event of The Cuban Revolution a magnificent moment, a genuine representation of an era of changes and beauty. He once said, “My photographs are vivid memories of my country’s history. They gave me the opportunity to succeed as a photographer.”
From the personal collection of Dante Korda.
Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Dante Korda
