Event Description

Manuel Álvarez Bravo (1902–2002) spent nearly eight decades, from the 1920s to the 1990s, photographing his native Mexico. He brought a poetic sense of light, composition, and perspective to his subjects that privileged mood and metaphor over documentation, establishing a distinct visual identity for his home country—one full of nuance, intimacy, and silence.
