Diemar/Noble Photography will present a unique range of photographs by Manuel Alvarez Bravo (1902-2002), renowned photographic pioneer of Mexico and celebrated master of the medium. This exhibition coincides with bicentennial celebrations of Mexico’s independence, and will open exactly 200 years after the call to take up arms against the Spanish colonial government. In addition, 2010 marks the 100 years since the start of the Mexican revolution, which is celebrated on 20 November.
The exhibition features images that span the twentieth century, from the 1920s through the 1990s. These photographs exemplify Bravo’s photographic and artistic vision, rooted in a modern aesthetic, while remaining acutely aware of cultural heritage in post-revolutionary Mexico.
This exhibition is a collaboration with the Toscafund & the Manuel Alvarez Bravo Association and is generously supported by The Embassy of Mexico in the United Kingdom.
