Who is the author of the most famous photo of Ernesto "Che" Guevara?
The photograph portraying the bust of a thirty-one-year-old Che Guevara was taken by Cuban photographer Alberto Korda. The image, which became an unofficial international symbol for revolution, was taken at a rather somber gathering. On 5th March 1960, a memorial service was held in honor of the victims of the La Coubre explosions in Havana, Cuba. The photographer later said that he was drawn to Che’s magnetic persona and above all, his facial expression. He later said that the revolutionary’s face reflected grief and anger and showed “absolute implacability.”
