The portrait of Ernesto "Che" Guevara, Guerrillero Heróico, photographed by Alberto Díaz Gutiérrez, known as "Korda" on March 5, 1960, is considered to be the most reproduced image in the history of photography. It has come to symbolize anti-establishment thought and action. Its political power has maintained its currency from 1968 to the present conflicts in the Middle East. It has reverberated from the cold war to our post-colonial reality. It is an image which has inspired sophisticated art yet its iconic silhouette is immediately recognizable.
