Blogging from A to Z Challenge: I is for…Graciela Iturbide (#AtoZChallenge)
Welcome to my April 2020 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!
Graciela Iturbide (1942- )is a Mexican photographer whose “photographs reveal the daily lives, customs, and rituals of Mexico’s underrepresented native cultures.” (https://nmwa.org/explore/artist-profiles/graciela-iturbide) “Iurbide’s powerful portrayal of Mexico comes at a time when its people are the subject of intense political debate across the border, as US President Donald Trump continues to push efforts to divide and fortify with an imposing wall.” (https://www.cnn.com/style/article/graciela-iturbide-mexico-photography/index.html) In addition to pure photography, Iturbide also works in mixed and multi media
I find Iturbide’s photography incredibly beautiful; hauntingly real portraits of people and places that are very personal, and I am looking forward to exploring her work more.
