Translated from The Art Server in Belgium:
The photo was made by Alberto Diaz Gutierrez, aka Alberto Korda.
The photographer of the revolution, as he was called, died in 2001 at 72 in Paris.
His famous photograph was reproduced zillions of times, including on T-shirts and many other objects.
And especially that is the theme of the exhibition: the use and abuse commercially of this famous portrait.
Ernesto Rafael ‘Che’ Guevara de la Serna (1928-1967) was an Argentine Marxist revolutionary and Cuban guerrilla leader.
