Mutant Cities reveals a gaze that vindicates a model of the city halfway between development and backwardness, a city that no longer wishes to be the cosmopolitan metropolis imposed by north-south dichotomies or European models…

Urbes Mutantes: Latin American Photography 1941-2012

Published by RM/Toluca Editions
Text by Alexis Fabry.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Urbes Mutantes: Latin American Photography 1941-2012</I>.Drawn from one of the richest and most critically acclaimed private collections of Latin American photography in the world (the Stanislas and Leticia Poniatowski collection), Urbes Mutantes is a visual exploration of the public spaces of various cities in Latin America. In particular, this project explores the capacity for architectural, cultural and social transformation from the 1950s onward, as modernist theories and policies became prevalent throughout Latin America. This comprehensive and generously illustrated volume includes striking images by such masters as Paolo Gasparini, Geraldo de Barros, Horacio Coppola and Fernell Franco, as well as important works from other rediscovered talents. These photographs explore a universal view of many important aspects of the Latin American city, from the commonalities found in night life, popular street culture, mass movements and political demonstrations, to the distinct contrasts that arise when internationally influenced modernist buildings are set amid traditional vernacular architecture.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

The New Yorker

"Mutant Cities," as the show's title translates... explores its subject with real verve. In seven decades worth of material, only a few names- Graciela Iturbide, Miguel Rio Branco, Enrique Metinides, Gabriel Orozco- are already familiar, so there's much to discover. Organized by themes, the show emphasizes street work, pop culture, portraiture, and social engagement, including fascinating protest documentation.
