This year, in collaboration with colleague Gregory Leroy, Charles Isaacs Photographs will feature vintage prints made by Mexican photographers. During the twentieth century, a thriving artistic community produced native-born masters and attracted foreigners, all of whom depicted the extraordinary conditions of Mexican life. This year, we will display images created by Emilio Amero from the 1930s when he was working with Julien Levy Gallery and with the Weyhe Gallery. Also featured will be works by Yolanda Andrade, who since her career began in 1977, has captured the vital street life of the Mexican people, including the LGBTQ community. We also will present Armando Salas Portugal’s experimental “thought” images (fotografia del pensamiento) from c. 1970 and a selection of his large hand-colored images of ruins from the late 1940’s. In addition, important works by key Mexican figures, including Lola Alvarez Bravo, Antonio Reynoso, and Kati Horna, will be on view.
