"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 Álvarez Bravo : photographs from the J. Paul Getty Museum by J. Paul Getty Museum( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Documentary & anti-graphic photographs by Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans & Alvarez Bravo : [Publié à l'occasion de la présentation de l'exposition documentary & anti-graphic photographs, à la fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson, Paris, 8 septembre-19 décembre 2004, au musée de l'Elysée, Lausanne, 10 février-10 avril 2005] by Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson( Book )

"Julien Levy was one of the most influential collectors of the 20th century. His gallery, which opened in 1931 in New York, played an essential role in avant-garde cultural exchanges between France and the United States of America, and especially, it was the first in the United States to promote Surrealism." "Gathered together again for the first time since, these period prints represent an exceptional set of essential and sometimes unknown images. This historical exhibition assembles the original early works of three masters of photography."--BOOK JACKET

Double Elephant : Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Walker Evans, Lee Friedlander, Garry Winogrand by Manuel Alvarez Bravo( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 57 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

"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

"Con motivo del centenario del nacimiento de Melgarejo Vivanco, la Universidad Veracruzana reedita hoy este volumen que recupera las magníficas imágenes del códice –captadas por la lente del gran fotógrafo Manuel Álvarez Bravo–, así como el estudio elaborado por Melgarejo Vivanco, que en su momento no sólo puso de nuevo sobre la palestra las posibilidades metodológicas del estudio de los códices, sino que además ubicó dicho estudio en el marco de una historia regional Las imágenes de los lienzos completos, así como los detalles de los dibujos, ofrecen al público no especializado la oportunidad de adentrarse en la historia de nuestros ancestros a través de sus muy elaboradas y bellas formas de registro, y de apreciar una tradición gráfica valiosa, con las variantes estilísticas atribuibles a los sucesivos copistas. La comparación de los lienzos permitirá a los estudiosos y especialistas acceder a conclusiones más sólidas acerca de los significados explícitos y tácitos que dichos documentos representan."--

Octavio Paz, entre la imagen y el nombre by Rafael Vargas( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in Spanish and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The depth and beauty of the poetic and essay work of Octavio Paz, full of ideas that attracted the attention of thousands of readers in Mexico and the world, made its author a public figure of extraordinary relevance during the second half of his life. This is proved by the vast bibliohemerography around his writings and the considerable amount of his images in magazines and newspapers in many countries. However, although he did not shy away from it, Octavio Paz was not a man eager for fame. He was not intoxicated by vanity. He wanted to be read, yes, but he did not care about being "known". He knew that fame is a kind of confusion and that poetry imposes strict moral responsibilities - that is, to a large extent, the theme of "A difficult learning", one of the poems that make up Águila or sol? For that reason, he did not accept to be photographed easily, and beyond the images that graphic reporters inevitably captured in public events, he used to reject the requests made by photographers - some of them very connoted. Actually, Paz agreed to be portrayed very few times. This book brings together a good part of the photographs that he consented either to the most distinguished Mexican photographers and his inseparable companion, Marie-José, to whom, as Rafael Vargas points out in the introductory text, we owe the "testimony of a large number of encounters and important moments in the life of the poet ". This is the first time that such a large number of photographs of Octavio Paz (more than sixty) have been collected in a book, including some unpublished ones, and several sequences that had never been published jointly before.--translation provided by translate.google.com
