About the photography:

Norka. Havana, ca. 1956

Korda began his career as a fashion and advertising photographer. This photograph of Norka, his greatest muse, taken in 1956 at Studios Korda, is a faithful example of his photographic language: the use of light, almost always natural, and the precision on framing and composition of the image. The result is an authentic treatise on female beauty.

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.
