Statement from Graciela Iturbide on the back of print “Untitled, Rio de Janeiro. 2005.”
“Wandering led me to a warehouse in Rio de Janeiro, where I found objects from Carnival and very strange images caught my attention. They reminded me of Salvador Dali. It was a wonderful world, and this is the first time I am publishing this photo.”
So, Graciela Iturbide was born in 1942 in Mexico City. In 1969 she enrolled at the age of 27 at the film school Centro de Estudios Cinematográficos at the Universidad Nacional Autónama de México to become a film director. However she was soon drawn to the art of still photography as practiced by the Mexican modernist master Manuel Alvarez Bravo who was teaching at the University. From 1970-71 she worked as Bravo’s assistant accompanying him on his various photographic journeys throughout Mexico.
In the early half of the 1970s, Iturbide traveled widely across Latin America in particular to Cuba and several trips to Panama.
