Magnum Photo's - "Revolution". A fascinating multimedia slide show of great b&w photo's with commentary by the late Burt Glinn in which he tells the story of how he left overnight for Cuba to document Fidel Castro's victory march to Havana. He tells of how he first had to locate the revolution, how he tracked down Castro and how events unfolded thereafter.

Burt Glinn se fotos is nog altyd vir my amazing. Wat interresant is is dat baie van sy fotos tegnies eenvoudig (lees maklik) is; its all about the right place at the right time.
