Art| Mexican Photographer Graciela Iturbide

Yesterday, I went with my mom to the Tate Britain and Tate Modern. She is going back to Mexico next week so I we are visiting all the tourist spots in London. When we went to the Tate Modern and there was an exhibition of Graciela Iturbide a Mexican photographer. I remembered a few of her photos, her work is very recognised in Mexico. Her photography mainly in Black & White captures the everyday daily life of Mexico’s indigenous cultures and has photographed life in Mexico City, Juchitán, Oaxaca and on the Mexican/American frontier.

Her photography is of the highest visual strength and beauty. Graciela Iturbide has developed a photographic style based on her strong interest in culture, ritual and everyday life in her native Mexico and other countries.


Ayer , fui con mi mamá a la Tate Britain y Tate Modern . Ella se va a regresar a México la próxima semana, así que hemos estado visitando los lugares mas turísticos de Londres. Cuando fuimos a la Tate Modern , estaba una exposición de Graciela Iturbide una fotógrafa mexicana. Me acordé de algunas de sus fotos porque la banda estadounidense Rage Against the Machine utilizo una de sus fotos en uno de sus álbumes. Su fotografía principalmente en Blanco y Negro captura la vida diaria cotidiana de las culturas indígenas de México y ha fotografiado la vida en la Ciudad de México , Juchitán , Oaxaca y en la frontera de México / Estados Unidos. 
Su fotografía es de gran fuerza visual y belleza. Graciela Iturbide ha desarrollado un estilo fotográfico basado en su fuerte interés por la cultura , los rituales y la vida cotidiana en su natal México y en otros países .

  1. I love these photos. Thank you for introducing her work. It reminds me of the work of Diane Arbus, especially her last set of photos of kids in a mental institution -- haunting.

  2. These are great photos and must have been stunnng to see them in the gallery. I was supposed to go to the gallery yesterday but we had the Hubert snowstorm (again!) so my trip is rescheduled until next week.

    I bet you had a nice visit with your mom and will miss her when she leaves.

    1. They looked amazing in the gallery plus I think she captures Mexican the beauty and darkness of Mexico. You are right I'm going to miss my mom a lot! :(

  3. ¿Eres de México?... Desde que te descubrí he pensado que eres de España. je.
