— Alberto Korda

The most reckoning Alberto Korda quotes that are free to learn and impress others

Forget the camera, forget the lens, forget all of that.

With any four-dollar camera, you can capture the best picture.


I remember it as if it were today... seeing him [Che] framed in the viewfinder, with that expression. I am still startled by the impact... it shakes me so powerfully. (On his iconic photo of Che Guevara)


To use the image of Che Guevara to sell vodka is a slur on his name and memory.

He never drank himself, he was not a drunk, and drink should not be associated with his immortal memory... As a supporter of the ideals for which Che Guevara died, I am not averse to its reproduction by those who wish to propagate his memory and the cause of social justice throughout the world.


I still forgive him, because by doing what he did, he made it famous.


There's something about his eyes in the photo.

A kind of mystery. His personality comes through. It's always hung on my walls and I've given it to many people as a present. (On his iconic photo of Che Guevara)
