Graciela Iturbide is participating in Look3 Festival in Charlottesville, VA this June 13 - 19. In addition to her exhibition Naturata, Graciela will have an artist talk on 17 June at The Paramount Theater starting at 5PM with a book signing to follow.
"As a native and current resident of Mexico City, Graciela Iturbide uses photography to shine light on hidden corners of her country and other parts of Latin America. Equal parts documentarian and fine-art photographer, she has trained a lens on indigenous peoples of Mexico, birds, funerary rituals and her world travels. Evocative and surrealistic at times, her black and white images are textured yet sparse. Iturbide has published and exhibited extensively around the world since the 1980s. She has also won countless awards for her work, and is one of the most notable Mexican photographers in recent decades." -via c-ville.com
