About

Ernesto "Che" Guevara is an original photo realized by René Burri in 1963, and soon become one of his most celebrated portraits, as well as one of the most famous images of Ernesto "Che" Guevara. Original black and white C-Type proof on Fuji Crystal. Very good conditions Limited edition of Magnum Photos New York. Title and original Magnum Photos stamp on the back Original title “Cuba. Havana. Ministry of Industry. Ernesto Guevara (Che), Argentinian politician, Ministry of Industry for Cuba (1961-1965) during an exclusive interview in his office. Havana. Cuba. 1963" In 1962 René Burri visited Havana on commission for Look magazine. Burri meets Che, Minister of Industry, in his office in Havana and takes the rare opportunity to photograph him for an American magazine, even though Che doesn't take it too well: he won't watch it all the time. The result is eight rolls depicting Che Guevara in every kind of situation: sitting, smiling, angry, concentrated while lighting up another Havana. Among this large number of shots, only one will become the icon that we know and share for anniversaries. The magazine will cut that portrait badly, but Burri, while underlining the bad page posting of the photo, has always said with great modesty that "that photograph has entered our imagination thanks to Che and his great cigar, not my work".
