M A Bravo Sweeping Boy 1950

London:Bookworms May Meeting

Event info

Meetings of the Bookworm Club take place monthly, on the 3rd Wednesday of the month when a member of the Group introduces the work of a photographer of their choice.

For the May meeting,  Gordana Johnson will introduce us to the work of Manuel Alvarez Bravo (1902-2002). Known as “the father of Mexican photography”, the subjects of his photography include Mexican traditional customs, the Mexican people and urban life, but the themes of his work go beyond the boundaries of his country. His work is regarded by some as Surrealist, by others as Modernist. Both these movements and Cubism were very important to Bravo and influenced his work. Manuel Alvarez Bravo, published in 2002 in the Phaidon 55 Series, contains very good reproductions. Also recommended is In focus- Manuel Alvarez Bravo, photographs from the J. Paul Getty Museum (Getty Publications, 2001), but the reproductions are not always as good.
