Talk & Book Signing
Mexican Portraits Book Launch
Tuesday, May 7
Aperture presents a talk and book signing with Mexican Portraits photographer and editor Pablo Ortiz Monasterio. Mexican Portraits, co-published by Aperture and Fundación Televisa, includes more than 350 portraits by over eighty anonymous and well-known photographers, including Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Agustín V. Casasola, Romualdo García, Graciela Iturbide, and Enrique Metinides. Monasterio will discuss the process of selecting and sequencing the photographs to tell a history of Mexico, as well as reflect on Mexican identity, both individual and collective.
This event is made possible with the support of the Mexican Cultural Institute of New York and the Mexican Tourism Board.
