In this session, Elizabeth Ferrer will discuss the fruitful creative and cultural exchanges between two pioneers of modern photography, the photographers Edward Weston and Manuel Álvarez Bravo.
This conference is presented as part of our series “Bilateral Relations: Undercurrents of Creativity”, which will explore the ways in which artists from Mexico and the United States have drawn insight from each other and how these exchanges have furthered their respective genres and inform our perceptions of each other.
