Photos of Cuba

The Deena Stryker Photographs Collection features approximately 1,850 photographs that were shot in Cuba between 1963 and 1964 and processed by Alberto Korda on the island. Held at Duke University, and part of the Archive of Documentary Arts, the collection features photographs of Fidel and Raúl Castro as well as other major figures in the Cuban Revolution, including Ernesto "Che" Guevara, Celia Sánchez, and René Vallejo. In addition to images of key members of Castro's government, the collection documents "everyday life in Havana and in rural Cuba, focusing on farms, development projects, and schools."
