Fidel Castro: Immortalised in Photographs

James Clifford Kent (Photographer)

Research output: Non-textual formWeb publication/site


Editor's note: After Fidel Castro died, his brother Raúl proclaimed that his name and likeness would never adorn a public building or square. The aim, he said, was to avoid the rise of a cult of personality. But that cult already exists, after five decades in the making – and at its centre are photographs of Castro from the revolutionary era. James Kent was in Cuba in the days after Castro died. He shares his moving pictures of Cubans in mourning, and of a country remembering its leader in photographic form.
