This exhibition explores the diverse tradition of photography in Mexico, from the medium’s first flowering in the wake of the Mexican Revolution (1910–20) and the explosion of the illustrated press at midcentury to the intense documentary investigations of the 1970s and ’80s and more recent considerations of the U.S./Mexico border region. Drawn from SFMOMA’s world-class photography holdings and highlighting recent major gifts and loans from Daniel Greenberg and Susan Steinhauser, the selection underscores particular strengths in the collections, with photographs by Edward Weston, Tina Modotti, and Paul Strand, who, along with many other American and European photographers, found Mexico to be a place of great artistic inspiration. The exhibition also showcases the wide-ranging approaches of important Mexican photographers, including Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Lola Alvarez Bravo, Manuel Carrillo, and more.
