“One day… you will understand that there exist men and women such as us, without a face and without a name, who have abandoned everything, even their own lives, so that other children… can get up everyday without having to remain silent and hiding their faces to confront the world. When that day comes, we, those with no face and no name, will finally be able to rest under the earth. Dead, of course, but happy…” (Subcomandante Marcos, EZLN)
Nuestra Hermana WOC Photography Series :
Graciela Iturbide is a 69 year old Mexican photographer born in 1942. Around 1970, Iturbide studied photography at the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico.
The majority of her photography is black & white and uses natural life and whichever environment she is submerged in at the time.
Her first collection released was titled “Mujer Angel” and embodied her feminist views which continued to be weaved through her career. Her best known collection was shot in Juchitan, Oaxaca, a city where women dominated life. It was titled “Señora de Las Iguanas”. Out of this series, came a photograph named “Magnolia”, featuring a physically male person wearing a dress. This photograph challenged and discussed sexuality and gender in Mexico.
She is also the founder of Mexican Council of Photography. Her work can be found in many major museums including but not limited to: Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the J. Paul Getty Museum.
Es irónico que en USA se quejen del aumento de mexicanos en el sur, cuando en realidad ellos fueron quienes invadieron México. SALUD!!!!
It’s ironic that the U.S. complain about the increase of Mexicans in the south, when in reality is that they were the ones who invaded Mexico. Cheers!!!!
yes…”ironic” is one way to put it. others are “assy,” “uninformed,” “ignorant,” and “racist.”
