Burt Glinn dies age 82
Cold war photographer Burt Glinn has died age 82. He’s most well known for his work in Cuba during Castro’s revolution. The Moscow Times remembers this highlight in his career on New Year’s Eve in 1958 when the young photographer arrived in Havana looking for the revolution,
When he was in New York and got word that the Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista had fled the country and that a ragtag band of revolutionaries led by Castro would be making a triumphant march into Havana. Glinn figured he’d head down there.
“At seven in the morning I was in Havana at the airport figuring out how to find where this thing was going on,” Glinn said in an interview with Magnum Photo on the agency’s web site. “You can’t just get in a cab and say, ‘Take me to the revolution.'” link
