    One of the latest in the Captured History series, this book focuses on the story and cultural impact of this famous photograph The teenaged RATM fan in me decided to pick this one up before any of the other new books in the shipment I learned a lot about Guevara, Castro, and Cuba that I did not necessarily know previously or maybe forgot I love how the Captured History collection focuses not only on the history of the picture but on the photographer who captured the moment as well.

    Reviews the history of the photograph of Che Guevara s face that has become a cultural icon Smith Ilera gives the context from that immediate moment, explaining what Guevara was reacting to, and then goes into the Cuban history that led up to that moment From there, the book returns to the image and how it was adopted for various contexts She also reviews the legal history of the image, and how the photographer, Alberto Korda, did not restrict its use Readers will learn a bit about the various movements that used the image and how they interpreted it The book finishes with a quote from Guevara s daughter who says that while he may not have appreciated every use of his face, he would appreciate that it has become a symbol for resistance Overall an appropriate, succinct book There were a few moments where I wanted a bit information For example, Smith Ilera mentions the Bay of Pigs and the Cuban Missile Crisis without explaining what these events were I don t think every reader would approach the text with that knowledge, but I can understand not wanted to go too far into a complicated history.
