Flor Garduno and Graciela Iturbide

Flor Garduno and Graciela Iturbide were both students of Manuel Álvarez Bravo and I adored them both!

“The photograph Mujer Ángel [Angel Woman] was taken in the Sonoran desert; she is a Seri Indian. I called it Mujer Ángel because in some way it represents the change that this community had. Until 80 years ago they were nomads and abruptly entered into the capitalist system of the US. They trade their folk art for electronic equipment like radios, videos, etc., and the use of this equipment within their culture is very interesting to me.

The photo Mujer Ángel was taken casually and when I saw the contact sheets I didn’t remember the moment in which I taken the photo. In this case, I feel that it is an image that the desert gave to me.

There are images in the history of photography as much as in the history of painting that one can’t forget. For example, I will never forget the Madonna del parto by Piero della Francesca nor La Piedad by Eugene Smith. What has intensity is what reaches and stays with us.”
