FLOR GARDUÑO BY LYLE REXER

Published in Photomag.Com

The photographs of Flor Garduño create a bridge between worlds – the sacred and the quotidian, the body and the spirit – allowing us glimpses, in the words of Mexican novelist Carlos Fuentes, of “a moving portrait of eternity.” Her early apprenticeship with Manuel Álvarez Bravo provided a model for imaging historical realities through a language of symbols. A mini-retrospective of her black-and-white photographs is on view at Throckmorton Fine Art through February 25.

Flor Garduño, Throckmorton Fine Art Gallery

December 1, 2016 - February 25, 2017

THROCKMORTON FINE ART IS PLEASED TO PRESENT:

Throckmorton Fine Art is pleased to announce an exhibit of the photography of one of Latin America’s most celebrated contemporary artists, Flor Garduño. The exhibit will present 30 black-and-white images, highlighting her most recent work, but also including some of the most iconic images from her prolific career.

Garduño was born in Mexico City in 1957. She studied visual arts at the San Carlos Academy of the Arts at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. Although she was first attracted to drawing, she was captivated by photography. In 1979, she began working as an assistant to Latin America’s greatest photographer, Manuel Ávarez Bravo (1902-2002). He had an indelible influence on Garduño, but she developed her own “eye”—and style.

FLOR GARDUÑO, at BRUCIE COLLECTIONS GALLERY

September 14, 2016 - December 18, 2016

Brucie Collections Gallery is excited to present the works of Flor Garduño, one of the most outstanding representatives of Latin American modern art, internationally recognized as one of the heirs to the great tradition of Mexican photography.
Born in Mexico City in 1957, Garduño entered the Old San Carlos Academy at the age of 19, to study visual arts. Around that time she also took part in the photography workshop of the Hungarian Surrealist photographer Kati Horna, whose work had a profound influence on the young artist. In 1979, she started working as a darkroom assistant for Manuel Alvarez Bravo, the most influential Mexican photographer of the 20th century. In the early 80s, Garduño worked under the directions of another of Mexican photography greats, Mariana Yampolsky, traveling to rural villages throughout Mexico and honing her own unique style infusing descriptive photography with mystical archetypes and symbolism of Latin America.
It’s during these travels that the photographer found her source of inspiration, captivated by the landscapes and the depth of the indigenous culture.
Garduño’s first personal exhibition took place in 1982 in her hometown of Mexico City followed by numerous solo and joint shows in the most prestigious galleries and museums all over the world. During the author’s 30-year long fruitful career, her black and white photography that mainly depicted the lives and rituals of native people throughout the Americas gravitated towards somewhat more personal, inner motifs, as in more recent years Garduño began to concentrate on symbolic female nudes, portraits and “silent-lives” – Flor`s unique vision of still-lives.
She has published several books of her photography including, Magia del Juego Eterno (The Magic of the Eternal Game) (1985), Bestiarium (1987), Witnesses of Time (1992), Mesteños (1994), Flor Garduño: Inner Light (2003), Trilogy (2011) and Flor Garduño, Photo Poche Collection (2016).
Flor Garduño’s artwork is in the permanent collections of The Museum of Modern Art, in New York, The Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, The Center for Creative Photography in Tucson, Arizona, the Museo de Arte Moderno in Mexico City, Bibliothèque National de France in Paris; Museum Ludwig in Köln and other notable public and private collections.
Besides Mexico Flor also has a Swiss citizenship and for a long time spent her life in travels between these two countries.
The selected photographs of Flor Garduño will be available for view and purchase in Brucie Collections gallery starting September 15, 2016.

Flor Garduño’s Mythical Nature

Flor Garduño’s “Trilogy” divides work from 30 years of her career into categories she calls “Bestiarium,” “Silent Natures” and “Fantastic Women,” which blur the boundaries between nature and myth, body and dream. Incorporating plants in her studies of nude women or exploring the spiritual connection between people and real or fictional animals, Garduño suggests universal powers rooted in nature. Almost 100 images from “Trilogy” make up a retrospective of her work on view at the Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego until May 29.

INSIDE THE BLACK AND WHITE WORLD OF PHOTOGRAPHER FLOR GARDUNO

By Sandra Castillo, April 12, 2016

Her visions are an amalgamation of another universe, where the people and landscapes are shrouded in the contemplations of her ruminations. She, the visual composer of her introspections, relinquishes them only to the notion that she is, first and foremost, a renowned artist whose desire to share her craft with others is what most purveyors of her ilk do; however, the world of photographer Flor Garduno exists solely on the premise of her willingness to open her eyes and capture those dreamscapes of her imagination, so that others may see what she sees and breathes.

Flor Garduño explores fantastic, powerful women in mysterious and evocative in San Diego photo show

By Michael James Rocha
March 4, 2016
Los Angeles Times

Women have long been portrayed in art as inscrutable ciphers, from the ancient Greek Kore statues with their tight smiles to the Mona Lisa. But photographer Flor Garduño plays with those enigmatic representations, showing women as not only idealized and mysterious creatures but also powerful and self-fulfilled beings.

El mundo blanco y negro de Flor Garduño

Por Evelyn Nieves Feb. 12, 2016

Flor Garduño, la prestigiosa fotógrafa mexicana, tiene un secreto: la fotografía no fue su primer amor.

“Me gustaba mucho dibujar”, recuerda en su casa en la Ciudad de México. “Y siempre tuve el sueño de convertirme en una pintora”.

Pero mientras estudiaba en la Academia de San Carlos en 1977, Garduño conoció a dos maestros de la fotografía que cambiaron su vida. La primera fue Kati Horna (1912-2000), la fotógrafa de guerra húngara que también exploró el surrealismo, el feminismo y la lucha de clases en México. Horna se convirtió en su mentora y le enseñó a explorar temas y movimientos sociales o, en sus palabras, “las visiones con las que todavía estoy trabajando”.

Luego conoció al mexicano Manuel Álvarez Bravo.

Flor Garduño’s Vision in Black-and-White

By Evelyn Nieves Feb. 9, 2016

Flor Garduño, the celebrated Mexican photographer, had a confession: Photography was not her first love.

“I used to draw a lot,” she said from her home in Mexico City, “and always had the dream of becoming a painter.”

Instead, while studying at the San Carlos School of Fine Art in 1977, Ms. Garduño met two masters of photography who would change her life. Kati Horna (1912-2000), the Hungarian war photographer who explored surrealism, feminism and class in Mexico, became Ms. Garduño’s mentor, teaching her how to explore issues and themes, or “the visions with which I am still working.”

Then there was Manuel Álvarez Bravo.

THE COMPASSIONATE EYE: WOMEN BEHIND THE LENS

11/28/2015 - 12/9/2015

Shortly after the development of photography in the mid 19th century, women became early practitioners of the medium and expanded its range by experimenting with its every aspect and playing a pivotal role in its reception. Their lasting impact on photography is historically documented, but within the early stages of its development as a means of artistic expression, it often was women’s enthusiastic engagement in image making that can be attributed to the medium’s strength as a vehicle for story telling, the re-creation of personal dramas as well as the experimentation with printing out techniques.

Pioneering Female Photographers in Mexico

By Evelyn Nieves Oct. 1, 2015

Can you imagine what it was like to be a “woman photographer” in the early 20th century? Not easy. Sexism ran rampant, even in the creative class. But in Mexico, the end of the revolution of 1910-20 ushered in a period of new artistic freedom, and intrepid female artists seized the moment. They took their cameras to the streets, challenging mores and conventions, playing with forms of expression and creating images that influenced the art of future generations. In a country where women didn’t fully win the right to vote until 1953, this was quite the feat.

Exhibition at Throckmorton Fine Art presents works by nine Mexican women photographers

NEW YORK, NY.- Throckmorton Fine Art is staging an important show of Mexican Photography by nine of the most acclaimed women photographers at its New York gallery at 145 East 57 Street from Sept 24 through Nov 14.

In the preface to the catalog for WOMEN PIONEERS - MEXICAN Photography I Spencer Throckmorton says, “To my knowledge there never before has been such an exhibit. The women whose work is shown here are all pioneers, crashing through the barriers imposed by a male-dominated society and culture. They took the initiative; they took the risks. I have to believe that their determination, their zeal and their fearlessness shaped their images of what they saw and what they photographed.

Looking In, Looking Out: Latin American Photography

Selected from the permanent collection of the Santa Barbara Museum of Art (SBMA), the 47 works in Looking In, Looking Out: Latin American Photography explore various aspects of Latin American history and culture. Representing works produced after the 1930s by artists and photographers living and working in Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Guatemala, Mexico, and other nations, the exhibition highlights the wide-ranging landscapes of these regions, while also documenting many of the societal changes that have occurred from the 1930s to the present.

Joy Laville, Chuck & George, Flor Garduño

Three very different artists take over the McKinney Avenue Contemporary this weekend. Mexican-based artist Joy Laville's paintings return to Dallas for her first exhibition in 30 years, featuring work from five decades of painting. In the square gallery, Dallas-based collaborative duo Chuck and George create an immersive installation "channelling 1970s kitsch." In their crazy world you'll find tech pop microwaves filled with "turducken gravy boat, sweet piglet pussy pie, and melting parfaits of flattery, create a fantastical tower of lights." The press release describes it as comic and disturbing. There will also be a display of Flor Garduño's photography.

Flor Garduño Nature silenziose

WINNER OF THE “ADC – 85th ANNUAL AWARDS” – MERIT AWARD –
SEMI-FINALIST/HONORABLE MENTION – INDEPENDENT PUBLISHER BOOK AWARDS 2006

A human body, fruit, a flower, a child, a fish, a horse, an old photograph photographed in the snow … in her images this Mexican artist collects lost fragments, fragments of everyday life, some melancholic, some agonizing, of her homeland, Mexico, and her reminiscences; she allows us to perceive all the sensuality and physicality of the body and facial expression, all the nostalgia for a world unavoidably becoming lost in the great shift towards approval. Hers is a language which, with the passing of time, has touched upon not so much the simplicity as the secret complexity of the subject. A language that is pure theatre.

Flor Garduño

March 21 - May 9, 2015

Garduño will exhibit selected works from her photographic publications, including Trilogy.

Trilogy is a collection of the works Garduño realized throughout many years of photography in Mexico and Europe. Her great and magnificent visual production develops through a “dance” in three movements. The overture is Bestiarium, in which real and fictional images of enchanted animals come to life as metaphors of our dreams and passions. Then we have Fantastic Women, a celebration of the feminine universe and of the mystery and sensuality that spring from the female body. The dance ends with Silent Natures, where Garduño contemplates wilderness because, quoting the photographer herself, “Whenever I think of Silent Natures, I must confess that I created these photographs for myself, to maintain my playful spirit throughout all these years.”

When you learn your craft in a semiotic factory (think Warhol not Ford) run by Manuel Alvarez Bravo, when you grow up in Mexico City but then spend years of your life chronicling the Mexican indigenous outlands (fantastic worlds filled with life, history, and violence, visible and invisible), and when your medium is a camera, wonderful things can happen.

The Life Cycle

El Ciclo de la Vida. Música antigua en los surcos del arte contemporáneo, conmemorates the 25th anniversary of Capella de Ministrers, underlining the intimate relationship that music and art have had for centuries as regards the human figure...

...A tree of life, then, which branches into Genesis, Metamorphosis, Concupiscence and Apocalipsis in order to think upon the need for continuous growth. And it does so thanks to the works of four artists: Flor Garduño, Isabel Muñoz, Carmen Calvo and Eva Lootz, making manifest that they fuerunt et erunt, were and shall be consubstantial human questions over the centuries.

El ojo fino: The Exquisite Eye

Contemporary Women Photographers from Mexico

Feb 28, 2014 - May 25, 2014

Southeast Museum of Photography

Daytona Beach

"Each with a camera and 'exquisite eye,' these photographers share a finely tuned way of seeing the truths, visions, and enigmas of their beloved Mexico. ” – Connie Todd

The nine great women photographers from Mexico represented in this exhibition combine very personal and often visionary responses to the social realities around them in images that are often harsh, mysterious and beautiful. These three generations of Mexican women photographers are uniquely connected over a span of three generations and an entire century. Mentors, friends, colleagues all of them artists of great individuality and passion include  Lola Alvarez Bravo Kati Horna Mariana Yampolsky Graciela Iturbide Flor Garduño, Yolanda Andrade, Alicia Ahumada, Ángeles Torrejón, and Maya Goded. Each with a camera and “exquisite eye,” these photographers share a finely tuned way of seeing the truths, visions, and enigmas of their beloved Mexico. Their connections are revealed by a discreet homage, a borrowed element, or by overlapping spiritual territory.

Portals to the Human Spirit: A Survey of Cultural Diversity

Nov 23, 2013 - Dec 16, 2013

Holden Luntz Gallery, Palm Beach, Florida

Photography has an innate ability to establish human connections. This exhibition centers on the work of six photographers that produce images that bind us to the human spirit. The color of our skin, the clothes we wear, the shelters and social groups we live in have great diversity, but the fundamental, non-visual, human needs of all these groups are fundamentally the same as our own. The nature of the global village acts to homogenize our customs and differences. It is counter productive in preserving a society’s uniqueness. With the shrinking of the world caused by Western expansionism and the ease of international travel – we are also shrinking the world’s divergent cultures.

Works by Alison wright, Flor Garduño, Dana Gluckstein, Carol Beckwith, Angela Fischer and Marcus Leatherdale.

Arnold Newman: In Context

June 29, 2013 - September 8, 2013

San Diego Museum of Art, California

This Permanent Collection installation is presented as a compliment to the temporary exhibition Arnold Newman: Masterclass. Divided between two main sections, the installation presents recent acquisitions in photography and works by artists portrayed in Newman’s photographs. The Museum continues to grow its Permanent Collection of photography. This presentation of recent acquisitions focuses on photographers active in Mexico and the United States and includes works by Newman's contemporaries, such as Gjon Mili, Alfred Eisenstaedt, and Esther Bubley. A portrait by Leo Matiz, the Colombian photographer who worked in Mexico, depicts Frida Kahlo and resonates with Arnold Newman’s interest in depicting artists. A photograph by Flor Garduño suggests the paintings of Diego Rivera, reminding viewers of the power of symbols and gesture in the work of Newman. Portraits of artists represent one of the major components of Newman’s oeuvre and remain some of his most highly recognizedimages of his subjects. Arnold Newman: In Context presents works from the Permanent Collection by artists portrayed in the adjacent exhibition Arnold Newman: Masterclass. Rarely seen works by Isamu Noguchi and Alex Katz are here presented alongside collection favorites such as Georgia O’Keeffe’s Purple Hills. Moreover, this installation showcases the ability of an encyclopedic museum to complement Newman’s portraits of Claes Oldenburg and Helen Frankenthaler, among others, with works by these same artists.

Flor Garduño exhibe selección fotográfica en Ginebra, Suiza

By Redacción/Sinembargo — May, 2013

México, 1 May. (Notimex).- Una selección de 15 imágenes de “Testigos del tiempo”, de la fotógrafa Flor Garduño, dedicada a la resistencia cultural en América Latina, forma parte de la 27 edición del Salón del Libro y de la Prensa, que inició hoy en Ginebra, Suiza, y concluirá el 5 de mayo. De su participación como parte de la delegación mexicana, invitada de honor al encuentro, la artista de la lente confió en que esta selección ofrezca una visión global de lo que es su proyecto “Testigos del tiempo”, colección formada por 72 fotografías. Portafolios en el que se aborda la lucha por mantener las tradiciones en América Latina, sobre todo en partes altas como Bolivia o Perú, explicó en un comunicado el Consejo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes (Conaculta). Garduño describió que durante su trabajo se dio cuenta que gracias a los mitos y rituales sagrados de diversas culturas, muchos pueblos mantienen un sentido de pertenencia. Dijo que igualmente plasmó los paisajes y su esencia, la presencia de la muerte a través de sus tradiciones, sus fiestas y todos aquellos rituales que otorgan sentido de comunidad. Reconoció que le es muy importante seguir mostrando la riqueza de las culturas y comunidades de la región, que deben ser un orgullo para todos, y con la idea de que no ocurra lo que en otras latitudes, donde se arrasó con los pueblos originarios. El proyecto “Testigos del tiempo” cuenta con un texto escrito por el recientemente fallecido escritor mexicano Carlos Fuentes, en el cual el autor afirma que en su arte Garduño revela el acto de sacralización en el que los habitantes de diversos pueblos de América Latina convocan y sustituyen a sus dioses mediante el enmascaramiento. La autora comentó que para este portafolios recibió apoyo del gobierno de Suiza y del Conaculta, por lo que reconoció que el respaldo que se da en México a las artes es un ejemplo para América Latina. También resaltó que las políticas culturales mexicanas son de los grandes aciertos de esta nación, y explicó que la cultura es una manera de mostrar otra cara de la nación, aquella en la que hay tradiciones milenarias y un pasado de gran riqueza. En Ginebra también se difunde la edición impresa del proyecto, mismo que además estará disponible en francés. Flor Garduño estudió Artes Visuales en la Antigua Academia de San Carlos, con la maestra Kati Horna, y después trabajó como asistente del legendario fotógrafo Manuel Álvarez Bravo.

October 15, 2012 - January 13, 2013

Gallery of Classical Photography in Moscow has been opened the Exhibition Dreams and Metaphors of the well-known Mexican photographer Flor Garduño.
The exposition presents over 70 works by her that have become world-famous. The Mexican photo artist takes pictures of women and, apparently, for women. She seeks for natural beauty — her models have nothing to do with glossy beauties perfected in Photoshop to please men’s eyes. Women as seen and shown by Flor Garduno are children of nature with a wise look, plump thighs, ripe breasts, and hot aura.
Quite often they are surrounded with flowers or fruit — they are as fine and natural as fresh lilies or juicy lemons. And the black-and-white film deepens the impression of documentary shooting and authenticity of nature. See more at: russia-ic.com

Trilogía, Centro Cultural Santo Domingo, Oaxaca

Oaxaca, México.- Trilogía, es la exposición  que organiza el Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia (INAH) y el Centro Cultural Santo Domingo y la cual será inaugurada el domingo 2 de octubre a las 12:00 horas.

En esta exposición, se presenta los casi 30 años de producción de la fotógrafa mexicana Flor Garduño divididos en tres temas: Bestiarium, Mujeres fantásticas y Naturalezas silenciosas.

Considerada entre las mejores fotógrafas contemporáneas del mundo, Flor Garduño se distingue por una discreta y refinada mirada que gracias a la maestría y el dominio del oficio, provoca asombro, emociones y ensoñaciones.

Mediante el juego y el rigor en la producción de sus imágenes, logra cautivar nuestra mirada y sumergirnos en una profunda introspección o mantenernos sorprendidos ante convivencias in­verosímiles con innegables guiños clásicos.

Espejos en los que la llama de la vida despliega sus rítmicas cadencias, los su­jetos creados por la artista –sean bestias, seres u objetos–, nacen de disparos que alumbran mundos secretos, íntimos y cercanos. En ellos despierta la magia del juego y el buen tino. Arrojan fulgores, armonías y equilibrios, mitos y reali­dades desprendidos de una trama entretejida de experiencias de las que aflora la sensibilidad de la fotógrafa.

Trilogía se exhibió por primera vez en el Museo del Antiguo Colegio de San Ildefonso. Ahora es recibida con honores en Oaxaca y se inaugura el domingo 2 de octubre de 2011, a las 12:00 horas. Nos acompañará la autora Flor Garduño y la Sra. Paloma Porráz del Amo, Directora del Antiguo Colegio de San Ildefonso.

Esta exposición se exhibirá en el Centro Cultural Santo Domingo de martes a domingo de 10:00 a 18:00 horas.

Double Exposure / Doble Exposición: Rostros de la Ruptura

El Museo Arocena y la Colección FEMSA tienen el honor de invitarle a la apertura de la exhibición Double Exposure / Doble Exposición, una muestra de fotografía contemporánea realizada en colaboración con la reconocida Colección FEMSA.

Rostros de la Ruptura plantea un tema eterno para el arte: la idea del retrato como un reflejo del alma. En las imágenes se percibe tanto al retratado como la presencia implícita del que retrata, es el encuentro de dos fuerzas creativas: una doble exposición.

Estamos seguros que los rostros aquí retratados evocarán el espíritu de una época que se atrevió a disentir, a proponer y a construir una nueva forma de pensar y hacer arte.

Fantastic Women

NOVEMBER 6, 2008 – JANUARY 9, 2009

Throckmorton Fine Art is pleased to present an exhibit of recent photography by one of Latin America’s most acclaimed photographers, Flor Garduño. Garduño’s photographs attain an element of both earthly primacy and timeless classicism. They are uncluttered, focused, pristine, and yet invite multiple interpretations: they stimulate curiosity and invite contemplation. Garduño’s images are sublime. Indeed, Garduño has been called “a poet”—a great and worthy compliment.

FLOR GARDUÑO - FANTASTIC WOMEN

May 3, 2007 – Jun 23, 2007

Fahey/Klein Gallery The Fahey/Klein Gallery is pleased to present new work from Mexican photographer Flor Garduño. Fantastic Women takes viewers on a visual display of beauty, wonder, and intrigue. Garduño's photographs continue the exploration of the fictionalized feminine ideal by reinterpreting the human figure as the archetypal representation of today's woman. "She takes photography into the realm of magical realism and creates a new dialogue by rewriting the story of woman with new legends and new myths" (Tereso Caspa Hurst, Bello Magazine, 2006). With careful construction of ritualistic, symbolic, and visual logistics, the world envisioned in Fantastic Women becomes one of truth, dreams, and an examination of the human condition. Garduño's focus on the female form is heightened by its coupling with elements of rich texture and contrasts of light which create imaginative and ethereal compositions that unravel and investigate the universal concepts of creation. At the age of 18, Flor Garduño attended the School of Fine Arts at the National University in Mexico City, mentored by the Hungarian artist Katie Horna. After finishing her studies in 1979, Garduño was hired by Mexican photographer Manuel Alvarez Bravo as a darkroom assistant where she further developed her discipline and photographic skills. Garduño took her first independent position under the Secretary of Public Education where she was sent to parts of rural Mexico to document indigenous people-a project that later gave Garduño an avenue in which to use fantastical elements in her future work. Garduño's first book, Testigos del Tiempo (Witnesses of Time, Aperture, 1992) garnered both international exposure and recognition by having been published in five languages with seven editions and touring more than 40 exhibitions worldwide. Since then, she has published Inner Light/ Flor (Bulfinch Press, 2002) and Silent Natures (Gabriele Capelli Editore, 2005), two additional books that define Garduño's poetic photography. Garduño's photography has been exhibited in over 35 museums including the Center for Creative Photography in Tucson, the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes in Mexico City, the Museum of Modern Art - New York and Houston, the Art Institute of Chicago, as well as numerous other museums worldwide. Flor Garduño currently lives in Mexico and Switzerland with her daughter and her son.

Flor Garduño - Witnesses of Time

by Marek Grygiel

THE MEXICAN photography is much appreciated throughout the world. One of the reasons for that is the work of the most prominent figure of Mexican photography, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, who died not long ago. Well known are also achievements of a whole galaxy of excellent Mexican photographers. One of the most esteemed camera artist became Flor Garduño. Her work concentrates around recording the region in which she is involved emotionally and culturally, that is to say, the countries of South America, her native Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Ecuador, Bolivia.

Her project significantly named "Testigos del Tiempo" (Witnesses of Time) was realized in the years 1983-1991. It is documentary photographic recording of the life of people living beyond great cities, devoted to their daily rhythm and customs. Her pictures contain a wealth of the sense of form. Garduño photographed life, religious celebrations and social events. All this was done while maintaining certain distance and with great emphasis put on regularity of composition and balanced framing. It is equally true when she is photographing true world of poor people from provincial regions and when her pictures present landscape, architecture, wealth of tropical nature. All this was realized using very sophisticated, sparing means with lighting and composition playing primary role.

América originaria. Naufragios, filiaciones, espejos.

Por Armando Bartra

La fotógrafa mexicana Flor Garduño ha publicado hasta la fecha cinco libros. "América originaria" nace de una selección de dos de sus títulos: "Testigos del tiempo" (premiado en Europa y Estados Unidos y con más de veinte exhibiciones individuales en museos y galerías del mundo entero) y "Mesteños". Garduño busca a los pobladores originales de América, de la Patagonia a Alaska, de la Tierra del Fuego a los Territorios del Yukón, con una mirada a los pueblos indios alejada de la complacencia o el sentimiento de superioridad. Acompaña su trabajo un texto del filósofo Armando Bartra.

Land of make-believe: The pictures of Flor Garduno lend a fairy-tale quality to Latin America.

The Independent - by Jane Richards

Tuesday 29, March 1994.

 

The profile of Mexican photography has been raised considerably by the recent sale of Tina Modotti's 1925 photograph Roses for an unprecedented dollars 165,000. Though Italian-born and raised in California, Modotti's astonishing photographic output grew out of her experiences in her adopted country, Mexico, where she was apprenticed to the great photographer (and Modotti's lover) Edward Weston. One of Modotti's greatest admirers was the young Mexican photographer Manuel Alvarez Bravo - who went on to achieve international acclaim. And now it's the turn of his apprentice, Flor Garduno, who celebrates her first British exhibition, 'Witnesses of Time' at the National Museum of Photography. Carrying the Mexican torch, Flor Garduno has taken pictures of her native Latin America on her travels through the more remote regions of Guatemala, Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador, focusing on the culture, landscape, architecture and religious ceremonies of some of the 40 million indians living in the continent. In search of an expression for this indigenous culture's fight for survival, she has produced a surreal body of work where lone figures inhabit strange landscapes and haunted, or masked, faces stare out from stark portraits. What emerges is a world of the dispossessed, obscured through the years by the European invasion. The rigours of daily rural life are seen to be alleviated by overwhelming religious and mystic beliefs which dominate the lives of this American people. In Garduno's stunning body of black-and-white photography, Tina Modotti's influence both endures and ends. Here is Modotti's mastery of the subtle nuances of light and shade, together with the kind of exquisite composition learnt from Edward Weston and continued in the work of Alvarez Bravo. But there the similarity ends. For Flor Garduno's photographs are as magical and other-worldly as Modotti's are grounded in an unshakeable realism. Where Modotti was committed to a political form of artistic expression, Garduno seeks to heighten the mythical aspects of Latin American culture and does so by embuing her subjects with ethereal qualities. This could almost be a land of make-believe, in the realm of fairy-tales, where statues seem to breathe and small children turn to stone. A masked figure becomes a dog in human clothes, an old man seems to dance with a wooden statue of a saint. In an introduction to the exhibition catalogue, the Mexican novelist Carlos Fuentes delivers a fitting tribute, noting 'the profiles of the only real American aristocracy; two boys who are kings of clubs . . . ancient kings, fallen princes: they have no other dominion than that of time'.

Witnesses of Time: Photographs by Flor Garduño

January 21, 1993 - March 7, 1993

The approximately 100 images contained in the exhibit conveyed a poetic and intimate vision of surviving indigenous communities in the Americas, particularly in rural areas of Mexico, Guatemala, Peru, Bolivia, and Ecuador. In these photographs, taken from the mid 1980s to the early 1990s, Garduño expressed the richness, vitality, and spirituality of peoples who resisted the assimilation of Western values and ways of life.
