Cuba’s Fidel Castro is the focus of a new photography exhibit in Mexico City. Angela Moore reports.
He is arguably Cuba's most influential leader - a Communist - a revolutionary - a president. Now, ahead of his 90th birthday later this year, a new photography exhibition explores the public and private life of Fidel Castro. The exhibition is in Mexico City and on display are more than 50 photographs of Castro. SOUNDBITE: Ismary Gonzalez, Cuban Embassy in Mexico, saying (Spanish): "This is an exhibition that reflects the charisma and the personality of this leader, of the Cuban revolution. You can see Fidel the politician, the human Fidel, the sportsman, Fidel the leader, always at the forefront of social and political life in our country, Cuba." Castro is hailed by some for the advances made in Cuba in the fields of education and medicine. By others, he is called a dictator and is accused of human rights abuses.
