HAVANA, Sep 12th (RHC) An exhibition of Alberto Korda’s heritage in homage to the 90th anniversary of his birth will be opened on September 14 at the Fototeca de Cuba, located in Havana.

The sample will be called Havana? Obsessions Interrupts. The woman in Korda’s photograph and, as her title indicates, will be a tribute to the work of the artist, especially the dozens of women portrayed by him.

The organizers of the exhibition said that a great weight of the sample comes from the 50 thousand negatives on the Revolution that are kept in the archives of the Council of State of Cuba, in addition to some copies in gelatin silver preserved by old models and several publications of time.

They also stressed that the exhibition aims to rebuild that creative route of female beauty that was fragmented in the creation of the prominent Cuban photographer.

The organizing team also stated that it will be a way of approaching his work, understanding him as the artist of beauty that was in the first instance and knowing how he managed to make the effective photos of the Revolution.

Alberto Korda was a Cuban photographer, born in Havana in 1928 and died in Paris in 2001, who is known in the world by the photo taken to the Heroic Guerrilla Ernesto Che Guevara, when he looked at the funeral procession of the victims in the terrorist attack to the ship La Coubre, on March 5, 1960.
