Manuel Álvarez Bravo



Spoiler:
Manuel Álvarez Bravo (February 4, 1902 – October 19, 2002) was a Mexican photographer[1].
Álvarez Bravo was born in Mexico City
on February 4, 1902. He came from a family of artists and writers, and
met several other prominent artists who encouraged his work when he was
young, including Tina Modotti and Diego Rivera. His grandfather was a photographer and his father was a patron of photography, painting and literary composition.
Manuel began studying painting and music at the Academia Nacional de Bellas Artes
in 1918. He received his first photographic camera in 1923, and in 1925
began his essays on aesthetics and the technical work of photography,
but did not begin professional photography until 1925. Though he was
never formally a member of the surrealist movement, his work displays
many characteristics of surrealism[citation needed],
and he was exposed to many of its founders. His work often suggests
dreams or fantasies, and he frequently photographed inanimate objects
in ways that gave them humanistic qualities.
His work bears some similarity to the work of Clarence John Laughlin, an American photographer who was working in New Orleans at around the same time.[citation needed]
They both loved literature, and made references to the mythologies of
their time visually and in the titles of their images. They both used
old-fashioned cameras which were slower than the Leica which were becoming popular among other art photographers of the day. They also both knew Edward Weston, so it is possible that they influenced each other's work.
Álvarez Bravo's work was often political[citation needed], referencing the turmoil of the Mexican Revolution both directly and indirectly. One of his most famous photographs[citation needed], Obrero en huelga, asesinado (Striking Worker, Assassinated)
depicts the face of a bloodied corpse lying in the sun is housed at The
Wittliff Collections, (i believe this photograph is owned by the
National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa) which houses the largest archive
of modern and contemporary Mexican photography in the United States
www.thewiffliffcollections@txstate.edu. He associated with many
revolutionary artists and writers, but did not let politics overwhelm
the personal aspects of his work; he continued to create beautiful,
dreamlike, photographs of life in Mexico until his death in 2002.
He is considered[who?]
a profoundly influential figure in contemporary Mexican and Latin
American Photography, and his work is widely published around the world.
