Fidel Castro turns 83

Fist in the air

Cuban officials in recent days have been opening photo exhibits to mark the 83rd birthday of Fidel Castro. Raúl Abreu Acuña took the Castro picture, above, and six more posted below. He has been a photographer for 30 years and is now Raúl Castro's official photographer, one Cuban official told me. I met Abreu briefly at the International Press Center in Havana while workers were setting up an exhibit displaying 35 of his photos.
