Manuel Alvarez Bravo, who celebrates his 100th birthday in 2002, is Mexico's most famous photographer. In eight decades as a photographer, he interacted with Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Sergei Eisentein, Tino Modotti and Octavio Paz, and created works of art that display an array of styles and themes. This volume contains 50 images with extended commentaries on each by Robert Tejada, an independent curator and critic. There is also a transcript of a symposium on Manuel Alvarez Bravo.
