Paris: Che Guevara’s Photography at the Barrio Latino
Just in time for the spring strike season, Paris is celebrating the work of one of the most notorious revolutionaries in modern history, Ernesto “Che” Guevara. You’ve already seen the t-shirts, watched The Motorcycle Diaries and probably seen a likeness of the revolutionary’s face too many times to count.
Few, however, have viewed the photographic oeuvre of Ernesto Guevara. Marking the anniversary of Guevara’s controversial death is a Paris exhibit devoted to his photography. Organized by Guevara’s oldest son Camilo, the work chronicles his life as a photographer and revolutionary, and includes work from the 1955 Pan-American games in Mexico to a self-portrait taken shortly before El Che’s death.
“Le Che photographe” will show at the Barrio Latino, 46 rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine, until May 7.
