Text engl. - Includes a chronology, exhibition history, bibliography and list of plates. Beautifully printed on heavy fine matt art paper under the supervision of Turner, from separations made by Firma Digital. Álvarez Bravo selected the photographs himself and authorized the tritones. „Without doubt, this is the most beautifully designed, informative and exquisitely printed major monograph on Álvarez Bravo's work ever published. From the Introduction by Sari Bermúdez: ,In the field of international photography, no other artist has given so much prestige and recognition to Mexico as Manuel Álvarez Bravo. His work is admired by thousands of art lovers the world over and it identifies one of the broadest aspects of our culture: its people. Besides being reason for celebration, the commemoration of his centenary is a time for reappraising and giving thought to his definitive contribution to the shaping of an aesthetic of universal reach, which, through the medium of a camera lens, has captured the mystery and dreams of an entire nation. One hundred years after his birth, the consummate evolution of the work of the artist has been recovered in a careful, loving selection of 100 of his most emblematic pictures.’“ (Antiq. Borelli, Albuquerque, NM, 04.2005).
