Manuel Álvarez Bravo Photographs
Mexico, Light and Time in Silence

Overview

The Mexican master Manuel Álvarez Bravo (1902-2002) left an indelible mark on the history of photography. Álvarez Bravo first emerged as a prominent figure in the late 1920s after the Mexican Revolution and during a turbulent period associated with the muralist movement and avant-garde art. From that point until his twilight years in the late ’90s, Álvarez Bravo constantly produced photographs that extolled a unique sense of quiet and poetic sentiment. This exhibition, the first full-scale retrospective of the artist’s work to be held in Japan, conveys the allure of Álvarez Bravo’s nearly 70-year practice through approximately 192 black-and-white prints and countless documents.
