Title Lola Alvarez Bravo

Author Bravo, Lola Alverez


ISBN: 9781931788946

Condition: New

Format: Hardcover



Mexico's first famous woman photographer, Lola Alvarez Bravo (1907-1993) moved in the same artistic circles as Jos? Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, and Frida Kahlo?indeed, Kahlo was the subject of some of her most powerful portraits.
Although some of her photographs reflect the influence of her husband Manuel Alvarez Bravo?they shared the same cameras and often the same roll of film?Lola was less interested in carefully staged images or symbolism. For her, capturing a particular person, in a particular moment, was more important.
She achieved her own aesthetic by the 1940s and 50s, producing significant bodies of work in portraiture and street photography, and also experimenting with collage.
This book, her first retrospective in English, collects 100 black and white images made from the 1930s to the 80s.
