"Lola Àlvarez Bravo" at the House of Latin America
Key figure of the artistic renaissance that followed the 1910 Revolution, Lola Alvarez Bravo is one of the most interesting Mexican photographer of the twentieth century. She has dedicated most of her professional career in documentary work, including working with Mexican government agencies, at a time when few women are entitled to exercise any activity that requires much personality independence. Also portraitist, she photographed renowned painters and more generally figures from the Mexican world of art and culture. The exhibition, the first to be dedicated to her in France, brings together a set of original vintage prints from 1992, one year before her death. B.D.
