Flor Garduño

About the artist

1957 —

As photographic pedigree goes, beginning your career as a darkroom assistant for Manuel Álvarez Bravo, the Mexican master, is not a bad way to start out. From such serendipitous origins, Flor Garduño, the portraitist and street photographer, has gone on to create a legacy of her own across a body of work that often finds intimacy in depictions of the female body, and of the indigineous peoples and cultures of Mexico.

Since Garduño's debut solo exhibition in Mexico City, in 1982, she has published four books, been exhibited across the Americas and Europe, and continually explored the ways in which a portrait or a still life can be imbued with poetry, or a touch of something sensual.
