I must have missed this, I am very familiar with the history and the story of the image. Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guerrillero_Heroico) has a great article on the image and its history. Che Guevara was a thug, a hater of art and an all around failure for the most part. I am at a loss why he is revered, but I will not go into one of long winded rants on this murderous, atrocious imbecile. Thanks for the link, always interesting to see how iconic photos are looked at and dealt with years after the photo was taken. The photographer although did take a classic photo.
