Calendar Photo Caption


The iconic portrait of Che Guevara stoically gazing past the camera, captured by Cuban photographer Alberto Diaz Gutierrez (aka Alberto Korda) and reproduced on T-shirts by innumerable radicals stateside and abroad, is but a single glimpse of the photographic documentation of revolutionary Cuba, though it's about the only image most of us know. Shifting Tides: Cuban Photography After the Revolution, which presents more than 100 photographs by 16 photographers covering the 40-odd years of Castro's Cuba, opens Saturday at Columbia College's Museum of Contemporary Photography, 600 S. Michigan, and runs through March 9. Hours are 10 to 5 Monday through Friday (till 8 on Thursday) and noon to 5 Saturday. Admission is free; call 312-663-5554 for more information. At 6 PM on Thursday, January 17, Havana-based curator Cristina Vives will lead a free discussion in the museum galleries with several of the exhibiting artists.
