In the 1920s, after the Mexican Revolution ended, Manuel Alvarez Bravo picked up a camera without any formal training and began to document his homeland. Bravo's work exudes a calm aura while capturing the flux of a country suspended between tradition and a industrial transformation, a balance achieved through a dedicated manipulation of light, attention to contrast and bold lines. Supported by some of the most influential 20th century artists and intellectuals—including Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and poet Octavio Paz—Bravo's work is an emblematic documentation of Mexico over the span of eight decades.
