Until 8th September, the Photographers’ Gallery in London presents rare prints by the great modernist photographer Manuel Álvarez Bravo (1902–2002).
Manuel Álvarez Bravo ranks among the most important figures of Latin American photography in the 20th century, and is considered a pioneer of fine-art photography in his home country of Mexico.
Initially self-taught, Álvarez Bravo was influenced by the works of European artists such as Edward Weston and Tina Modotti – both of whom he eventually went on to meet. It was through them that he was introduced to Mexico’s avant-garde scene, including Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo.
The exhibition ‘Photopoetry’ comprises selected works from the book of the same title.
