Lola Alvarez Bravo
[Photographer, b. 1907, Lagos de Moreno, Jalisco, Mexico, d. 1993, Mexico City.]
If my photos have any value, it’s because they show a Mexico that no longer exists.
If I came out a photographer it’s because I knew about painting, composition, and the handling of light.
I was the only woman fooling around with a camera in the streets and all the reporters laughed at me. So I became a fighter.
