B. Mexico, 1957
Flor Garduño is one of Mexico’s leading photographers, whose work is inspired by the people, landscape, literature and art of her native country. Growing up in a rural community enabled her to have contact with nature. This deeply personal relationship with nature and the Mexican landscape would go on to play an integral role in her later work. Garduño was deeply touched by the difficulties faced by the indigenous population that she encountered on her travels, seeking to reference traditional Mexican life, iconography and folklore in her work.
Garduño studied visual art at the Antigua Academia de San Carlos (UNAM). She has published several books, the first of which, Magia del Juego Eterno, was published in 1986. Her work has been exhibited internationally and is included in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Center for Creative Photography, Tucson, the Museo de Arte Moderno, Mexico City, the Bibliothèque National de France, Paris and the Museum Ludwig, in Cologne. She has also been the recipient of a Kodak award for her book Witnesses of Time.
