Alberto Korda

Ssp-light

Alberto Korda (born Alberto Díaz Gutiérrez in Havana in 1928, the same year as Che) was Cuba’s best known fashion photographer, and discovered several of Cuba’s best known fashion models, paragons of beauty whom he photographed and in this way introduced a vision of Cuban glamour and stylishness. Then came the Cuban Revolutionary War, and from his Havana studio Korda become Cuba’s best known photographer of the revolutionary period. Many of the iconic photographs of the new Cuba were taken by Korda, including the one of Che that captured his revolutionary spirit in such an extraordinarily natural and powerful way that it still stands as the iconic visual manifestation of revolutionary defiance.
