9780893817428: Manuel Alvarez Bravo: Masters of Photography Series (Aperture Masters of Photography)

Manuel Alvarez Bravo began photographing in 1924 during Mexico's thriving post-revolutionary artistic renaissance. While his early work embraced Mexico's urban realities, its peasants and workers, and its hauntingly beautiful landscape, Alvarez Bravo's ever-present acknowledgment of the macabre prompted André Breton, the leader of Surrealism in France, to claim him as an exponent of the movement. This volume offers a perfect introduction to his works.

About the Author:

Manuel Alvarez Bravo won his first award in 1931, and then decided to pursue photography as a career. He met André Breton in 1939, and his work was subsequently included in Surrealist exhibitions in Paris. In 1942, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, acquired their first works by Alvarez Bravo; in 1955, his photographs were included in Edward Steichen's Family of Man exhibition at MoMa. In 1959 Alvarez Bravo co-founded the Fondo Editorial de la Plástica Mexicana, with the goal of publishing books on Mexican art, which he co-directed until 1980, and from 1980 to 1986, he devoted his time to founding and developing the collection of the first Mexican Museum of Photography. Alvarez Bravo is the recipient of the Sourasky Art Prize (1974), the National Art Prize (Mexico, 1975), a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship (1975), the Victor and Erna Hasselblad Prize (1984), and the International Center of Photography's Master of Photography Award (1987).

Review:

"The photography of Manuel Alvarez Bravo is Mexican by cause, form, and content, anguish is omnipresent and the atmosphere is supersaturated with irony."--Diego Rivera

"Alvarez Bravo's photographs are enigmas in black-and-white, silent yet eloquent: without saying it, they allude to other realities, and without showing them, they evoke other images."--Octavio Paz
