Alberto Korda is internationally recognised as one of the masters of revolutionary Cuban photography whose portraits of Che Guevara and Fidel Castro inspired a generation of radical youth throughout the 1960s and 1970s. His most famous image is undoubtedly his powerful 1960 portrait of Che entitled Heroic Guerrilla, which has since become the most reproduced image in the history of photography. What is less known is that prior to the revolution in 1959 Korda was considered to be the Avedon of Cuba, a progressive fashion photographer whose portraits of leading Cuban models such as his second wife Norka graced the covers of leading fashion magazines around the world. Equally, his work of the 1970s and 1980s, that witnessed a prolonged discovery of underwater photography alongside a return to fashion, has been largely neglected. This book covers all aspects of Kordas extraordinary career with specific reference to his interest in fashion, the revolution and other features of Cuban society.
