Luc Chessex lived in Cuba from 1961 to 1975. As a member of the Prensa Latina agency and photo editor for the magazine Cuba internacional, he was an involved witness of the revolution.

Cherchez la Femme, presented in Havana in 1966, is a work on Cuban women that goes beyond political discourse. It is also a reflection on photography, presented in Havana under the title "photo-lying", in contradiction to preconceived ideas about photography being a "mirror of the world".
