  • Catalogue Essay

    The photograph offered here comes from the Collection of Carlos Vidali, son of Vittorio Vidali (1900-1983), who was Modotti’s partner during the last 15 years of her life. The Vidali family were entrusted with Modotti's negatives after her death; these posthumous printings are largely attributed to Manuel Álvarez Bravo who produced a small number of prints before the negatives were donated to the Museo del la Fotografia in Pachuca, Mexico in 1979.
