Maybe the most famous portrait photo of the 20th century.
Guerrillero Heroico by Alberto Korda of Che Guevara.
From Wikipedia we bring this short analysis:
Korda has said that at the moment he shot the picture, he was drawn to Guevara’s facial expression, which showed “absolute implacability” as well as anger and pain. Years later, Korda would say that the photo showed Che’s firm and stoic character. Guevara was 31 years old at the time the photo was taken
