"Manuel Alvarez Bravo has been the most significant single force in Mexican photography and one of the twentieth century's great Mexican artists, as well as an artist of international acclaim, yet the story of his contribution to the medium of photography has not previously been told in terms of his long and deep artistic development." "Alvarez Bravo has produced a body of photographs of exceptional quality throughout his lengthy career: early pictorialist work and other experiments, formal abstractions, images allied to international surrealism, and mature work of many kinds - portraits, urban and rural views, religious and vernacular subject, landscapes, and nudes - all unified in their originality, poetry, and insistence on human dignity. His profound affection for his country and its people has to a great degree formed our lasting image of Mexico itself." "This splendid book provides, for the first time, the most representative and faithfully reproduced summation of Alvarez Bravo's life achievement as well as the most complete documentation available. The majority of the book's 175 tritone plates were made from rare vintage prints furnished by the artist or assembled from private collections. Many of these have become well-known icons of modern photography, but close to half of them have never before been published and some not seen or exhibited since the 1930s." "Susan Kismaric has conducted an extensive series of interviews and conversations with the artist. Her essay traces his extraordinary career (the artist is now in his ninety-fifth year) and discusses his exceptional body of original work, acknowledging his international stature and the universality of his intimate poetic imagery. It gives us a comprehensive treatment of his oeuvre in terms of his own life, his deep pride in his Mexican heritage, and other avant-garde art and artists of his time in Mexico and elsewhere."--Jacket

Manuel Alvarez Bravo is generally recognized to be one of the masters of modern photography and the most significant artist in Mexico today. Born in Mexico City in 1902, Alvarez Bravo spent his youth in the city where visible markers of Mexico's pre-Columbian past, its colonial vestiges, and its modernity all coexist. His life and work have coincided with radical changes in the twentieth century, and he is the last of a generation of artists with direct ties to the avant-garde movements in Mexico during the 1920s and 1930s. Working within this cultural renaissance, Alvarez Bravo discovered complex ways to frame the disparity between urban and rural realities into a poetic vision of Mexico's modern life, its cultural differences and social contradictions. Divergence and apparent discontinuity are therefore two hallmarks of Alvarez Bravo's photography

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From 1973 to 1974, Lee Friedlander and Burt Wolf edited four iconic portfolios at the Double Elephant Press in New York, featuring photographs by some of the most influential photographers of the twentieth century: Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Walker Evans, Garry Winogrand, and Lee Friedlander himself. Each of the four limited edition portfolios contained fifteen photographs by each artist, representing their distinct visions that can be described in the words of Walker Evans as "oddly refreshing, unselfconsciously striking, and unpredictably adventurous." This publication honors the unique collaborative project that was to become a touchstone in the history of photography.--Publisher description

Admiré dès 1939 par André Breton et par ses contemporains du monde entier, d'Octavio Paz à Bernard Plossu, Manuel Alvarez Bravo est le père de la photographie latino-américaine. Contrairement à son ami Cartier-Bresson qui n'a cessé de voyager, le photographe mexicain a concentré l'exercice de son art sur un périmètre familier : le Mexique
Manuel Alvarez Bravo : photopoetry by Manuel Álvarez Bravo( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in 5 languages and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over 370 tritone photographs, arranged in broadly chronological order, mark Alvarez Bravo's remarkable eighty-year career. Strikingly poetic and richly resonant, the collection includes iconic images as well as over thirty previously unpublished masterpieces. Urban and rural scenes, still lifes, nudes, religious and vernacular subjects, portraits of luminaries including Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo and Octavio Paz: all illustrate the peerless acuity of the photographer's eye. Above all, Alvarez Bravo's work celebrates his beloved Mexico, with its indigenous rituals and age-old customs."--Jacket

"Ce livre, préfacé par Bernard Plossu, est la première grande monographie consacrée au photographe mexicain Manuel Àlvarez Bravo (1902-2002). À l'ombre tutélaire d'Atget et de Tina Modotti (mais aussi de James Joyce, de Cervantès et de Gracian) et dans la proximité amicale d'Henri Cartier-Bresson et de Paul Strand, de Diego Rivera, d'André Breton et de bien d'autres écrivains et artistes, Àlvarez Bravo a recherché dans le Mexique de son temps la plénitude intemporelle de l'instant présent. Des choix graphiques très épurés, même dans ses photographies en couleur, lui ont permis d'aborder tour à tour, et avec un égal bonheur, des genres aussi différents que la nature morte, la scène de rue, le portrait, le nu et le paysage. Quelques motifs récurrents le seuil, l'échelle, l'arbre, ou encore les linges blancs confèrent à ses images une valeur puissamment symbolique. Des photographies d'Edward Weston, Tina Modotti, Berenice Abbott, Lola Àlvarez Bravo, Paul Strand ou Graciela Iturbide dialoguent avec environ 130 images de celui que l'on considère comme le père de la photographie mexicaine contemporaine."--P.
