    Graciela Iturbide

    Mexican • 1942

    One of Mexico’s foremost living artists, Graciela Iturbide challenges national stereotypes in her photography, documenting the lives of the indigenous population of her native Mexico. She studied under Manuel Álvarez Bravo at the Centro Universitario de Estudios Cinematográficos, part of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, and later worked as his assistant. Iturbide has received multiple awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1988, the Hasselblad Award in 2008 and the PHotoEspaña Award in 2010. Her work has been exhibited at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; Fundación MAPFRE, Madrid; and Tate Modern, London.
