The Mexican Revolution or Photography and Revolution
The pictures taken by British photographer Jimmy Hare in Ciudad Juárez in 1911 lead one to question whether there isn’t a book missing about photography and revolution, that would include pictures taken during this historic period?
That’s is exactly what was done in the book “Mexico, Photography and Revolution”. According to exhibition curator Miguel Angel Berumen, “the great quantity of works that we have brought together provide us with the widest selection of pictures taken during the Mexican Revolution gathered to this date”.
Among the works presented: Graciela Iturbide (born in 1934 in Mexico City), Maya Goded (born in 1970 in Mexico City), Enrique Metidines (born in 1934 in Mexico City), Daniela Rossell (born in 1973 in Mexico City), “Double Clair-Obscur” by Inaki Bonillas, “The true story of superheroes” by Dulce Pinzon and “Acts of Faith” by Fernando Montiel Klint.
The Mexican Suitcase
This exhibition, organized and revealed by the ICP in New York, shows the contents of Robert Capa’s famous suitcase discovered in Mexico. In reality, it consists of three little box hoding nearly 4500 negatives. Not only Capa’s negatives, but those of his colleagues Chim (David Seymour) and Gerda Taro. These negatives cover the war in Spain (1936–39) with detailed chronicles by Chim and documentation by Gerda Taro who took pictures until his death on a battlefield in July, 1937.
30 years of the New York Times Magazine
For more than 30 years, the weekly “The New York Times Magazine” has played an essential role in photojournalism, fashion and portraits. The exhibition organized by the Aperture Foundation of New York, with Kathy Ryan, photo director of the New York Times Magazine, offers a behind the scenes visit of the magazine’s motivations and goals.
The exhibition includes 15 installations that each explore a story or a series of stories that ran in the magazine, testifying to the magazine’s diversity.
The exhibition will also include a reading room, allowing visitors to rediscover the projects in context, as well as a collection of magazine covers over time.
Two evenings of projections at the Antique Theater are also part of “Documents”.
The first is “mano a mano” between the agencies VII / Tendance Floue".
The second, an homage to Roger Thérond, “the eye of Paris Match”, founder of the magazine “Photo” and collector. During this presentation, Jean-Jacques Naudet will display some of the most memorable stories in “Match” and a selection of images from his private collection. He will include testimony by Edmonde Charles- Roux, Sylvie Aubenas, Olivier Royant, Jean-Francois Leroy, Philippe Garner and Sebastião Salgado.
