3. The Corpse of Che Guevara – Freddy Alborta
Freddy Alborta photographed the corpse of Che Guevara, the Communist icon who was killed on October 10, 1967. Two days after his death, his body was displayed by Bolivian soldiers in the laundry house of the Vallegrande hospital. According to many, the photograph shows El Che in an almost “Christ-like image” and solidified his legend as “the patron saint of revolutionaries.” The photograph circulated throughout the world, and sparked the will of a great many who followed and supported El Che’s efforts.
