The interesting sidebar on the Che Guevara photo is that by 1960, Korda had taken a job as a newspaper photographer in Havana.
Che Guevara showed up unexpectedly at the rally for some dead sailors, and Korda snapped two shots of the guy, but the editor of the rag he worked for did not publish the photo, opting for photos of Castro and a few others.
Later, when Guevara died, the Italian went on to publish the Che Guevara poster to the tune of 2 million copies but Korda was up the creek as far as royalties since Castro had not signed the Berne Convention.
