If you are in the Daytona Beach Florida area before May 25, stop by and see this great show. This exhibition presents photographs by six of the most prominent female photographers associated with Mexico. These women are distinguished by their unique styles and their commitment to subjects of continuing relevance in Mexico. Other than Tina Modotti, who was born in Italy, and Kathy Vargas, an American of Mexican heritage, the other four women were born in Mexico. The nineteen images selected for the exhibition are only a portion of the Museum’s holdings of Mexican women photographers and most have previously been exhibited at the Museum. Included are works by Lourdes Almeida, Yolanda Andrade, Lola Álvarez Bravo,Graciela Iturbide, Tina Modotti and Kathy Vargas.
