Often imitated, never duplicated; this is the iconic photograph of Che Guevara,as taken by Alberto Korda.

Those of you of a certain age might recall seeing this picture on everything from t-shirts to posters back in the day ... as recently as a few years back, Madonna aped this style for the cover photo of her "American Life" album.

Korda apparently was never paid for this photograph, yet it has been used to sell everything from vodka to music (as well as ideals). Interestingly enough, Korda sued Smirnoff vodka for using the photo in an ad and was awarded 50, 000 which he promptly donated to the Cuban health care system.
