Summary
"Lola Álvarez Bravo (1903-1993) lived and worked in Mexico City from 1927 to 1993 where she played a critical role in the country's cultural renaissance. With over forty photographs and photomontages, this book spans the artist's prolific five-decade career. Beyond her creative output as a photographer, this catalogue addresses Álvarez Bravo's role in building and securing the legacy of the post-revolutionary period through her work as a political activist, educator, and curator. The book recognizes the artist's dialogue with modernist photographers including Tina Modotti, Edward Weston, and Paul Strand, while also situating her within the broader cultural sphere in which she operated--offering new insight into the mutual influence she shared with prominent painters, filmmakers, and literary figures of her time"--
