|“Mujer Ángel, Desierto de Sonora, México (Angel Woman, Sonora Desert, Mexico),” |
1979. Graciela Iturbide / Museum of Fine Arts, Boston & New York Times
That work informs viewers of a rich tapestry of unexpected contrasts captured in many places throughout Mexico. Those of us in the Boston area are -- for now -- very fortunate that we can begin our exploration in this Times article and continue it in an exhibition of Iturbide's work at the Museum of Fine Arts this January 19 to May 12. Some of the work -- including the arresting image of a prosthetic leg and boot -- will be part of a separate exhibition of works about the great artist Frida Kahlo, February 27 to June 16. I will be visiting some time in the overlap between the two.
I look forward to exploring more work under the byline of Evelyn Nieves, much of which celebrates the work of photographers.
