Review 
  
"The photography of Manuel Alvarez Bravo is Mexican by cause, form, and content, anguish is omnipresent and the atmosphere is supersaturated with irony."--Diego Rivera 
  
 
  
"Alvarez Bravo's photographs are enigmas in black-and-white, silent yet eloquent: without saying it, they allude to other realities, and without showing them, they evoke other images."--Octavio Paz 
  
--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.  
  
 
  
Book Description 
  
Manuel Alvarez Bravo's photography was first introduced to an international audience in a prominent way in 1953, in issue No.4 of Aperture. At that time, Aperture editor Minor White wrote about the photographer: "He see with great facility. A friend writes that one has to put blinders on him till the destination of the day is reached, or he is out of film before he gets there." 
  
 
  
Now, forty-four years later, we are honored to celebrate Don Manuel's ninety-fifth year year (and Aperture's forty-fifth anniversary) by continuing the tradition of publishing monographic issues devoted to the work of master photographers of our time,. We feel especially fortunate to have had the collaboration of Don Manuel and his wife, Colette Alvarez Urbajtel (a serious photographer in her own right), in the selection of the images that comprise Manual Alvarez Bravo: Photographs and Memories.
