The little-known color photography of Manuel ï¿½lvarez Bravo, presented in a beautiful cloth binding with a tipped-on cover image
Manuel ï¿½lvarez Bravo produced around 3,000 images in color over the course of his career, though he has tended to be better known for his black-and-white photography. In Color presents more than 80 of his most significant color photographs, many of them published for the first time.A broad spectrum of subject matter is presented in this volume, including photographs of a piece with his familiar style and themes--Mexican culture, street life and countryside, formal portraits, nudes--as well as his little-known color experiments. These works in color greatly expand our understanding of his scope and abilities. A key figure in 20th-century Latin American photography, Manuel ï¿½lvarez Bravo (1902-2002) was born in Mexico. Self-taught as a photographer, and influenced by avant-garde photography and (later) the Mexican muralist movement, he developed a very personal style that is now seen as marking the beginning of a true Mexican photography.
