I was surprised by that man…


“I was surprised by that man whose face could just as easily appear in a house as on a
t-shirt and that caught my attention. Then I decided to get to know
Che Guevara”.

bard_small1.jpgPatrick Bard, Renowned French novelist did not sit quite. When he decided to know Che , He decided to know it in Che style. He took his camera and …yes, what he found out is now in a collection called “The Che’s routes”.20071009checarte.jpg

Mr Bard just followed the route mentioned in the film “Motorcycle Diaries,” He came out with pictorial version of Che’s route of travel in his saga of revolution.
This book has come out at a great timing. 40 th death anniversary of Che. Bard is very polite in presenting his view on his book-I followed his route except for Salvador, Costa Rica and Panama. I consider this work as very personal and I’m not interested in the commercial success but in the people’s acknowledgment”.
“He is fascinated by the figure of Ernesto Che Guevara. He also noted his artistic work pays tribute to the ideals of the legendary Cuban-Argentinean fighter since he also
was shocked by the poverty and the inequality existing in Latin America when he was there”.
