Over forty years since his death and the Argentine Marxist revolutionary, Che Guevara would arguably still be the most recogniseable face of the last 100 years... The famous image taken by Cuban photographer Alberto Korda in 1960 of the revolutionary, for decades has been preproduced on posters, t-shirts and even currency and still to this day is the symbol of rebellion and revolution worldwide. As famous as it is, Korda (now deceased) hasn't received any royalties for it (although in 2000 vodka brand Smirnoff was sued for the miss use of the image, however Korda donated the settlement of $50K to the Cuban health care system).
When asked about the illicit use of his image Corda said "As a supporter of the ideals for which Che Guevara died, I am not averse to its reproduction by those who wish to propagate his memory and the cause of social justice throughout the world, but I am categorically against the exploitation of Che's image for the promotion of products such as alcohol, or for any purpose that denigrates the reputation of Che".
Below are some of the less famous images of one of history's most influential figures.
