Luc Chessex lived in Cuba from 1961 to 1975. As a member of the Prensa Latina agency and photo editor for the magazine Cuba internacional, he was an involved witness of the revolution. The Musée de l'Elysée is presenting four series of photographs from that time: Cherchez la Femme [Search for the Woman], Le Visage de la Révolution [The Face of the Revolution], Che and Coca. The exhibition was created from numerous original prints, publications, press clippings and an unpublished book on Cuban women.
