Paul Strand: The Mexican Portfolio

This exhibition presents Paul Strand’s famous Mexican Portfolio, which includes photogravure impressions of people, landscapes, architecture, and religious objects that he encountered in Mexico during his travels there in 1932. Strand, like many of the artists who were making art at the Taller de Gráfica Popular print studio, worked on these photographs during the period when the post-revolution government was trying to establish a modern national culture that would capture Mexico’s unique character.
