Deena Stryker Photographs, 1963-1964 and undated

Deena Stryker Photographs, 1963-1964 and undated. "...The Deena Stryker Photographs collection dates from July 1963 to July 1964 and contains photographs and related materials from Stryker's two working trips to Cuba. It was during her second trip to the island from December 1963 to July 1964 that she interviewed and photographed Fidel and Raúl Castro as well as other major figures in the Cuban Revolution, including Juan Almeida Bosque, Ernesto "Ché" Guevara, Armando Hart Dávalos, Celia Sánchez Manduley, Ramiro Valdés Menéndez, and others. In addition to images of key members of the Castro government at work and relaxing, the collection documents everyday life in Havana and in rural Cuba, focusing on farms, development projects, and schools. Alberto Korda processed all of Stryker's original 35mm negatives in Cuba creating contact sheets and a few small prints. However only the 35mm negatives have been digitized to date."
