Known for capturing the everyday lives of peasants and workers on film, Corrales ventured into remote parts of his country.

After the popular Revolution of 1959 against the Batista dictatorship, Raul Corrales joined the Communist Party of Cuba. For many years he served as one of Fidel Castro's offical photographers. Corrales also worked for almost three decades in the Office of Historical Affiars, helping to preserve and organize the revolution's documentary and photographic legacy."
