Mexican master Manuel Álvarez Bravo left an indelible mark on the art of photography. Bravo first emerged as a prominent figure in the late ’20s after the Mexican Revolution and during a turbulent period associated with the muralist movement and avant-garde art. From that point until the late ’90s, Bravo constantly produced photographs that extolled a unique sense of quiet and poetic sentiment.

This exhibition, the first full-scale retrospective of the artist’s work to be held in Japan, conveys the allure of Álvarez Bravo’s nearly 70-year practice through approximately 192 black-and-white prints and countless documents.
