Many photographers have tried to capture the elusive and enigmatic figure of Fidel Castro—the man behind the beard. This book presents a unique and intimate perspective of the Cuban leader through the camera lens of his son, Alex Castro, revealing the gaze of a photographer as well as that of a son. It captures Castro in his retirement years with personalities from the fields of culture and politics, including members of Robert Kennedy’s family and President Carter.

Born in 1963 and an engineer by profession, Alex Castro worked as a cinematographer and director at Mundo Latino, Cuba.
