Manuel Alvarez Bravo (1902-2002) is one of the key figures in the history of Latin-American photography. He first garnered attention in the late 1920s after the Mexican Revolution, a turbulent time that saw the rise of avant-garde art and the muralism movement, both of which influenced his surrealist but poetic images. Up until the ’90s, he produced a steady flow of timeless photographs that exude an artful sense of tranquility.

This is the first full-scale retrospective of Alvarez Bravo’s work to be held in Japan and it aims to convey nearly seven decades of his career through 192 black-and-white prints and documents.
