Synopsis: In 1935, an exhibition was mounted at the Julien Levy Gallery in Manhattan that united the work of three groundbreaking image makers: Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Walker Evans. Taking this historical event as its inspiration, Mexico/New Yorkfeatures work by all three photographers shot in the years leading up to the exhibition. This deluxe, limited-edition volume includes a total of 35 photographs--15 by Alvarez Bravo, 9 by Cartier-Bresson and 11 by Evans--for a poignant, pointed selection of some of the twentieth century's most recognizable and iconic images. Individual works are drawn from the collections of Henri Cartier-Bresson, the J. Paul Getty Museum and Manuel Alvarez Bravo's personal archives. Mexico/New York provides a striking, focused viewpoint into the oeuvre of three masters of visual modernism, revealing ties between New York's avant garde, Mexico's visual culture, and French Surrealism. The volume stands as well as an homage to Alvarez Bravo, Mexico's most celebrated photographer, who died recently at the age of 100.
