Self Portrait Che Guevara - Ernesto Che Guevara

Che Guevara. Beyond the Icon. His Own Words. His Own Photographs. His Family Archives.

Self Portrait, an intimate look at the man behind the icon, is a remarkable photographic and literary memoir, drawing on a rich seam of diaries, letters, poems, journalism and short stories Che Guevara left behind him in Cuba.

Unique among many books about Che Guevara, Self Portrait has been compiled in close collaboration with Che's family, using exclusive material from his family's private archives. Revealed for the first time is Che Guevara's personal world, unveiling his extra-ordinary candour, irony, dry humour and passion.

The photographs, chosen from the Guevara family albums, bring to life a surprisingly sensitive and artistic edge of the legendary revolutionary. A dedicated amateur photographer, Che's own self-portraits are a stunning feature of this selection, much of which has never before been published.
