Item description for Lola Alvarez Bravo by Elizabeth Ferrer, Lola Alvarez Bravo & Nancy Grubb...
La presente obra recoge alrededor de 100 fotografias en blanco y negro de la primera fotografa mexicana. Sus imagenes estan delicadamente tramadas de ironia y juegos visuales, y presentan, en algunos momentos, la tecnica del collage, con una reinterpretacion significativa de objetos y personas. Con ideas depuradas y claras, Alvarez Bravo muestra angulos muy particulares de Frida, Diego, la ciudad de Mexico y diversos personajes de la vida cultural mexicana. El libro incluye un estudio de Elizabeth Ferrer en el que se transcriben fragmentos de entrevistas con la fotografa y sus amistades.

A gathering of images essential to any modern art photo library Nov 5, 2006
LOLA ALVAREZ BRAVO by Elizabeth Ferrer has been published to coincide with an exhibition on view at the Aperture Gallery from September to November, but stands well on its own as an outstanding selection of images from Mexico's first woman photographer. It's the first major review of her work in over a decade, and provides a gathering of images essential to any modern art photo library - or to any holding with an emphasis on Mexican culture.
