Guevara was 31 at the time the photo was taken. Emphasizing the image' s ubiquitous nature and wide appeal, the Maryland Institute College of Art called the picture a symbol of the 20th century and the world' s most famous photo. Guerrillero Heroico is the name of Alberto Korda' s celebrated photo of the Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara. It was taken on March 5, 1960, in Havana, Cuba, at a memorial service for victims of the La Coubre explosion and by the end of the 1960' s turned the charismatic and controversial leader into a cultural icon. Korda has said that at the moment he shot the picture, he was drawn to Guevara' s facial expression, which showed "absolute implacability" as well as anger and pain. Years later, Korda would say that the photo showed Che' s firm and stoic character. Versions of it have been painted, printed, digitized, embroidered, tattooed, silk-screened, sculpted or sketched on nearly every surface imaginable, leading the Victoria and Albert Museum to say that the photo has been reproduced more than any other image in photography.
