Seeing through Mexican eyes

Ghost Camera_1My journey with photography began around the turn of the millennium. Almost immediately after picking up a camera I discovered the work of twentieth century Mexican photographers. They opened my eyes to the possibilities of making images that are both excellent and full of personal expression.

For some reason I did not feel the same connection with most North American and European photographers that I have with the Mexican masters. Regardless anyone can appreciate great work.

I will mention two individuals for now. There are many to investigate but this is a good place to start. Have a look at the work of Manuel Alvarez Bravo and his student Graciela Iturbide.
