A major retrospective documentation of the photoworks of Mexican photographer Manuel Alvarez Bravo, a seminal practitioner of 20th century visual arts.

Over 360 exquisite tritone photoraphs - including more than 20 previously unpublished images - span his vibrant 80-year career. Strikingly lyrical and richly resonant, the collection includes celebrated and iconic images as well as undiscovered masterpieces.

The work encompasses landscapes, urban & rural scenes, nudes, still-lifes, and religious and vernacular subjects, as well as portraits of luminaries such as Frida Kahlo and Octavio Paz.
