Mexican Portraits

Published by Aperture
Edited by Pablo Ortiz Monasterio. Introduction and text by Vesta Mónica Herrerías.

In the history of photography in Mexico, portraiture is an important, established tradition, transcending styles, subjects and decades. Mexican Portraits includes more than 350 portraits from more than 80 well-known Mexican photographers, including Romualdo García, Agustín V. Casasola, Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Enrique Metinides and Graciela Iturbide, among numerous others. Including both contemporary and classic works, mostly created in the years from the 1970s to the present, this diverse group of images has been selected by photographer and editor Pablo Ortiz Monsasterio in conjunction with curator Vesta Mónica Herrerías, and presents an idiosyncratic and personal perspective on this particular genre. Mexican Portraits explores the frontiers of portraiture from very different perspectives and associations. At the center of his wide-ranging selection are two distinct notions embedded in the history of the portrait: mask and metamorphosis. Organized into nine chapters, this beautifully illustrated book is a reflection on Mexican portraiture and identity, both individual and collective. Among the photographers represented here are Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Graciela Iturbide, Pedro Meyer, Agustín V. Casasola, Iñaki Bonillas, Maya Goded, Fernando Montiel Klimt, Gerardo Montiel Klimt, Guillermo Kahlo, Rodrigo Moya, Dr Lakra, Carla Verea, Stefan Ruiz, Melquiades Herrera, Ana Casas, Daniela Rosell, Francis Alÿs, Carlos Somonte, Miguel Calderón, Adolfo Patiño, Juan Guzmán and Eunice Adorno, Romualdo García and Enrique Metinides--an astonishing roll-call that itself articulates Mexican photographers’ special relationship to portraiture.
