Mexican Photographers, Mexican Views features more than 60 photographs created solely by Mexican artists that offer an intimate view into 20th-century Mexico and the country’s shifting national identity.

The exhibition, with works drawn exclusively from the collection of the Center for Creative Photography in Tucson, showcases a range of photographic techniques used in 20th-century Mexican photography and includes pastoral landscapes, portraits of indigenous peoples, and images of everyday rural life. Featured photographers include Hugo Brehme (1882–1954), Lola Álvarez Bravo (1903–1993), and Manuel Álvarez Bravo (1902–2002), among others. 

 
Mexican Photographers, Mexican Views is organized by Phoenix Art Museum and the Center for Creative Photography. It is made possible through the generosity of donors to the Museum’s annual fund.
