By // May 20, 2011 // Posted in Events, Photography, Photojournalism

The Getty (Los Angeles, CA, www.getty.edu) is hosting “A Revolutionary Project: Cuba from Walker Evans to Now.” Running through October 2, 2011, the unique exhibit looks at three critical periods in the island nation’s history as witnessed by photographers before, during and after the country’s 1959 Revolution. Some of the better known photographers include Walker Evans, Alberto Korda and Alex Harris. It was during and after the revolution that Fidel Castro, Ernesto “Che” Guevara and their new government used photography as a means of keeping Revolution at the forefront of Cuba’s collective consciousness.
