From his first days as a photographer - with the backing of such greats as Tina Modotti, Edward Weston, Paul Strand and Henri Cartier-Bresson - Manuel Alvarez Bravo worked over a wide range of styles and subject matter - formalist abstraction, architecture, interiors, landscapes, still lifes, and portraits - with a consistent focus on the landscape and social geography of Mexico. Eyes in His Eyes reintroduces some of the artist's overlooked masterpieces, and reveals a broad selection of never-before-seen images from his private archives. Culled with the help of the artist himself, and completed after his death, it is full of unfamiliar abstractions, portraits, landscapes and street photography, providing an excellent overview of one of Mexico's most gifted artists and a Modern master of photography.
