Lola Alvarez Bravo

Lola Alvarez Bravo (1907–1993) was Mexico’s first woman photographer. She began making photographs in 1926 under the tutelage of her husband, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, and continued photographing for the next sixty years. Lola achieved her own aesthetic during the 1940s and ’50s, concentrating on two particularly vivid bodies of work: portraiture and street photography.
