About the photography:

La Niña de la muñeca de palo. Sumidero, Pinar del Rio, February of 1959 © Alberto Korda Estate

Korda,  considered this photograph, taken in February 1959 in Sumidero, one of the most significant of his career. “I never thought of myself as a great photographer until I took this image of the Cuban girl holding a piece of wood”, he said. The photo was first published on September 2, 1959, in the newspaper Revolución, under the headline “We must not forget about this girl”.

Alberto Korda (1928-2001) is the author of the most reproduced photograph of the 20th century: the portrait of Che Guevara, Guerrillero Heroico. However, his work goes far beyond the theme of the Cuban Revolution. Korda photographed the beauty of Cuba’s women, people and sea throughout his extensive career, which began in the 1950s as a fashion and advertising photographer.

Fine art giclee printing is the practice of printing on museum-quality, archival mediums with archival pigment inks on high-resolution digital inkjet printers. This combination of high-quality materials, inks, and printers provide an unmatched range of color, depth, and detail. Fine art prints or fine art giclee (pronounced “jee-clay”) are industry-standard in the art world for art reproduction and photography due to their superior quality.
