Obsesiones Interruptas. La mujer en la fotografía de Alberto Korda

Alberto Díaz Gutiérrez, Korda (Havana, 1928 – Paris, 2001) photographed all its life to dozens of beautiful women, but it is not possible still to trace the aesthetic journey that he made for its faces and bodies. Just can be sense it through the scarce copies in gelatin silver print that some of their former models conserve and that have allowed the impressions that today we know; or through the copies rescued in the private files of friends; or in publications of that time —quite numerous in Cuba up to 1968 — that used to commission him their advertising announcements and their sections of beauty. This publication tries to put together a puzzle of images that allows understanding Korda like the photographer of the beauty that he was in first instance. A not very well-known and studied facet, so we can be able to understand how he was able to make the political leaders’ effective pictures later. This publication was produced because of the homonymous exhibition that took place in the Fototeca de Cuba in Havana in 2018.
