Join Kristen Gresh, Estrellita and Yousuf Karsh Curator of Photographs, to hear about how the photographs of Graciela Iturbide not only bear witness to Mexican society but also express an intense personal and poetic lyricism about her native country. One of the most influential photographers active in Latin America today, Iturbide captures everyday life and its cultures, rituals, and religions since the 1970s, while also calling attention to the rich syncretism, diversity, and inequalities in Mexican society. For Iturbide, photography is a way of life and a way of seeing and understanding Mexico and its beauty, challenges, and contradictions.
