The streets and alleys of Havana still bear vivid marks of Cuba’s 53 year-old revolution. The most enduring revolutionary icon is the stark line drawing of Cuban military and political leader Che Guevara, based on a photograph made in 1960 by newspaper photographer Alberto Korda. It has since become a worldwide symbol of revolution. There are dozens of such Guevara images in the city – this version is on the wall of a shipping terminal on Havana Bay. I photographed it early in the morning, while it was still in the shadows. I waited for the lone figure to approach, giving the image its sense of scale and purpose. The heroic icon looms large just ahead of this man, a fading black ink drawing floating on an aging field of peeling paint. It is all part of Cuban history now – a rebellious metaphor now showing its age – and its scars.
