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.”
