Che Guevara - the World through his Photographs

arrowFor the first time in Japan, a unique perspective is offered on the life of the famous revolutionist, Che Guevara. Over 240 Photographs taken by the man himself can be viewed providing insights into his story and that of countries he visited, the passion and perspective that shaped his actions.
Born Ernesto Guevara in Rosario, Argentina 1928, eChef showed an interest in photography at a young age after being introduced to his fathersf camera. Perhaps highlights of his photography portfolio were the founding of his High School Newspaper, making some money in parks and markets in Mexico, while there and also, in 1955, having a role as photographer at the Pan-American Games though he never actually got paid.
While at medical school, the young student and adventurer travelled by motorcycle over 5000miles exploring South America. He was impacted by the poverty and what he perceived as U.S exploitation. It impressed upon him and he formed thoughts of resistance. He met Fidel Castro in Mexico and sailed to Cuba to become part of the Cuban Revolution. It took a few years but the U.S backed dictatorship was overthrown. This lead to Guevara performing a number of significant roles for the Government. He travelled the world meeting various leaders and impacted the society and is acknowledged for improving the national literacy rates and ensuring university education for everyone.
However, he was still motivated by resistance and saw this as his path. A failed attempt in Congo and later, another mission to Bolivia eventually saw him captured and executed by Bolivian forces with the assistance of the CIA.
He is still honoured and held up as an ideological figure in Cuba and around the world even today, 50 years after his passing. With interest in the Small island nation recently including the re-opening of diplomatic relations with the U.S, (no doubt with more strings attached than a Cuban Orchestra), and even a visit to Fidel Castro in 2016 by Japans President Abe, this exhibition gives us the chance to bathe in focus that the leader himself took through the lens of his well travelled camera.
From the young eErnestitof to eChef, the captured Guerilla fighter, reflect on a journey through the world of our most famous resistance fighter via the poignant beauty and historical reference that photographs provide.
