  • Catalogue Essay

    “In Bravo, the sun is a quiet veil making the shadows like velvet. The shadows are endlessly deep and full, holding more—and more there—and the more. Whereas the sun in a Bravo photo almost always has a sense of humor, one cannot be sure about the shadows.”

    -Langston Hughes, Pictures More than Pictures: The Work of Manuel Álvarez Bravo and Cartier-Bresson
