Alberto Korda

Alberto Diaz Gutierrez better known as Alberto Korda is undoubtedly the most famous Cuban photographer. 
His legendary images of Che Guevara and Fidel Castro are part of the iconography and myth of the revolution, which has led to confusion and pigeonhole his work as the photographer of the "Cuban Revolution".
But Korda was much more than the man who portrayed the leaders. As explained by his daughter, Diana Diaz: "Only 10% of his work deals with the theme of revolution", and now finally the other Korda seems to emerge, giving us a new and more complete vision of the work of this great teacher.
