Graciela Iturbide is considered to be one of the world’s finest photographers. Her work fuses her interest in traditional Mexican culture with a contemporary vision that reveals the symbolic power of images. This exhibit features sixteen images from her career including photographs of Seri Indians, the matriarchal society of Juchitán, Mexico, Casa Azul (Frida Kahlo’s private home), and self-portraits.
