In “Cuba, Cuba! 65 Years of Photography” works by 30 Cuban photographers, among which are Alberto Korda, Raul Corrales, Ivan Canas, José Manuel Fors, and Marucha (Maria Eugenia Haya) are included. The exhibition also aims to indirectly show a much bigger picture that goes beyond the well-known time Korda became one of the ten best portraitists of all time with his famous photo of Ernesto Che Guevara in 1960, which is perhaps the most played instant in the history of photography worldwide.
