Lola Álvarez Bravo (1990-1993) was one of Mexico’s most prolific photographers. In a career stretching over a period of some fifty years, she combined commercial practice and teaching with the exploration of her own artistic interests. The one hundred photographs presented in this book belong to the González Rendón archive. They represent only a small selection of its incredibly varied riches. These photographs throw new light on Lola’s working methods and provide a deeper understanding of the complexity of her career. They also reveal her interest in surrealism and the avant-garde technique of photomontage, as well as her mastery of various genres, from the portraits of famous intellectuals and close friends to the documentary images of urban and rural poverty in Mexico.
