Graciela Iturbide: Images of the Spirit
Graciela Iturbide: Images of the Spirit at Throckmorton Fine Art. "...Graciela Iturbide has become one of the foremost fine art photographers living in Mexico today. Her work is a mixture of history, lyricism and portraiture. The subtle yet powerful photographs blend the evocative scenes of the cultures of her native Mexico with her own deeply personal vision. In dreamlike encounters with things that at first may appear ordinary, Graciela Iturbide perceives the surreal and extraordinary. The photographs combine the story of a culture in transition with issues of identity, diversity, and selfhood. She has remarkably engaged the workaday life and seasonal celebrations of various communities throughout Mexico for the past 35 years."
