The Magnum Photos Endowment Fund is digitizing its most iconic photos at the highest possible resolution for posterity. To promote this effort, Magnum produced a series of videos telling the stories behind the photos and capturing the portrayed historical figures through sound. I was tasked with capturing the essence of Che Guevara. First, I created a tapestry of relevant sounds: the lighting of a cigar, the revving of a motorcycle, a public domain sample of JFK on the Cuban Missile Crisis… However I did not have access to any public domain samples of Che himself. Having to recreate his voice, I tracked down a spanish-speaking singer and friend, Carlos Mora. I pulled together some key passages from Che’s most famous speeches and directed Carlos to bring out the passion. Have a listen to hear the results!
