Description: Cuban photographer Alberto Díaz Gutiérrez, simply known as Korda, is most famous for his image of Ernesto “Che” Guevara. This image, entitled Heroic Guerrilla, is the most reproduced image in the world, printed on everything from posters and t-shirts to high couture clothing. Prior to the revolution, Korda was a successful fashion photographer, defining the fashion photography aesthetic in Cuba. The iconic “Che” image that made Korda famous has overshadowed his earlier fashion photography, making this important body of work largely unknown. This is the first exhibition dedicated exclusively to Korda’s fashion photography.
