A collection of photos taken by Che Guevara are exhibited in Paris
A collection of photos taken by Che Guevara are being exhibited in Paris, filling with images and memories the streets of the Barrio Latino and shedding to light Ches liking for photography.
On the occasion of celebrating this October the 40th anniversary of Ernesto Che Guevaras death, a new aspect of his life, maybe not very well-known, is made public in the city of Paris, when the walls of Barrio Latino -located near the University of La Sorbonne), are exhibiting pictures taken by "Che."
This photo sample was granted by Camilo, Ernesto's first son, and it is integrated by 100 pictures that show the time and special moments of the Cuban-Argentinean leader's life.
"Everybody is familiar with these pictures, but many ignore they were taken by Ernesto "Che" Guevara himself, and the fact that he earned his living at a certain time, working for a Mexican News Agency", -pointed out the organizers of this exhibition.
The images deal with the Pan-American games held in Mexico, in 1955, the Cuban popular schools and his trips around Latin America, África and the southeastern Asia.
Only ten pictures are on sale to the price of 5 200 US dollars. The funds collected during the exhibition will be donated to the Che Guevara Studies Center, located in Havana.
