John Mack: Revealing Mexico

John Mack: Revealing Mexico at Robert Mann Gallery. "...Rendering this complex country in black and white, Mack has assembled what critic Teresa del Conde calls a 'mosaic of identities.' Expansive urban and rural landscapes, enigmatic street scenes and views of contemplative or poetic moments all conspire to sketch an intricate text of the nation. At once testament to the richness of contemporary Mexican intellectual culture, with portraits of seminal figures such as Graciela Iturbide, and Chavela Vargas, this body of photographs also does not shy from the contradictions inherent to Mexico's status in the twenty-first century as a place seemingly mystical, mysterious and modern."
