Manuel Álvarez Bravo

Manuel Álvarez Bravo was born in Mexico City in 1902. He worked along side many photographers and other artists including Tina Modotti, Paul Strand, and Diego Rivera.

“Deeply rooted in the culture of the Mexican people, Manuel Alvarez Bravo has created a major body of photographic work the significance of which has gone unrecognized until recent years. He has focused on the subtleties of human interaction, particularly in the lower classes, to make eloquent images of dreams, death, and transient life.”

Sorry to have link to the images, but here they’re all set up in flash, so they can be viewed in sequence:

The website is also one of the best places I’ve found on the web to view a massive amount of photography, all in great resolution.
