Overview

Born in 1902, Manuel Alvarez Bravo is Mexico's most celebrated living photographer. His far-reaching body of work includes many of the 20th century's most recognizable and iconic images. Collected here is a seductive, timeless, and entrancing sampling of the maestro's nudes, images taken in 1939 and as recently as the 1990s. Sensitively edited and sequenced by Ariadne Kimberly Huque, and with an impassioned and poetic introduction by Carlos Fuentes, this delicate, elegant volume beautifully reproduces some of Bravo's most favorite work, and provides an intimate window through which to view the career of one of the camera's true masters. Manuel Alvarez Bravo portrays and presents these women's bodies not to tell us to be content with what the world gives us, not to limit our desire, and not to ask us merely to conform, but to make us a gift of the body in person, a body here and now that does not sacrifice any of its potentialities, none of its "cans" and none of its "nevers". Here they are for anyone who knows how to look: the idea of the feminine body and its negation; the harmony of the body and the soul but also a possible disharmony; the presence of the body but also its inevitable absence; its pleasure but also its pain. —Carlos Fuentes Edited by Ariadne Kimberly Huque. Introduction by Carlos Fuentes. English/Spanish
