Camilo Cienfuegos photographed months before his disappearance

[Cienfuegos, Camilo, Cuban revolutionary (1932-1959)]. Vintage photographic print.

, [circa 1959]

356 x 279 mm.


Rare shot from the camera of Perfecto Romero, the photographer of the Cuban Revolution, who signed and dated "1959" on the verso. The subject of the photograph is Camilo Cienfuegos (1932-1959), hero of the revolution who was presumed dead only months later when his small plane mysteriously disappeared on a night flight. The verso also has a note from the Museo de la Revolucion, which thanks Rosa Maria Medel, the daughter of the Cuban-American singer Rosita Fornés, for this image: "A usted, por sos valores profesionales, patrioticos, eticos y por su firmeza como digna representante de un pueblo que jamàs ha claudicado / Museo de la Revolución / Octobre - 31 - 1998".

Slightly creased and with a few edge flaws; one larger tear on the left edge rebacked.
