Graciela Iturbide is famous for her cinematic black-and-white photographs, which depict indigenous groups and settings in her native Mexico. Iturbide’s frames, which she describes as “photo essays,” take inspiration from the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Tina Modotti, and Manuel Álvarez Bravo; her elegant compositions document the vibrant world around her while embracing spontaneity and beauty. Born in Mexico City, Iturbide initially studied film before focusing on photography. She has exhibited at the Barbican Gallery in London, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Mapfre Foundation in Madrid; her work belongs to the permanent collections of SFMOMA, the J. Paul Getty Museum, and Centre Pompidou. Drawn to women’s rituals and roles in marginalized societies, Iturbide casts a sensitive eye on experiences too often ignored by the mainstream media and art world.
