|Ernesto Guevara - Self-portrait © Centro de Estudios Che Guevara|
Now safely archived at the Havana-based Che Guevara Studies Centre, this exhibition also makes one thankful that the photographs have survived at all, for what could be more personal or bring us closer to the man behind the myth than be able to see the world through his own eyes? Or, as in the case of his intimate self-portraits, see Che as he saw himself, or rather, wanted to be remembered for posterity. Recommended!
Che Guevara fotografo continues at the Museo di Roma in Trastevere until 11 September, 2011.
