Hugo Brehme (1882-1954) was one of the most significant photographers in Mexico during the first half of the twentieth century. In contrast to his very successful commercial pictures of landscapes, architecture and milieu studies, that were spread around the world on postcards and as books illustrations, the few pictures he took of the Mexican Revolution have remained relatively unknown.
The exhibition, that was shown in different place in Mexico for the first time in 2009 and 2010, presents this fascinating side to his creative body of work. With large format pictures, it shows famous heroes of the revolution, the battles, and the destruction they caused; as well as images of the US intervention in the port of Veracruz.
