Biography

Graciela Iturbide’s photography turns on themes of spirituality, ritual, and folk and religious symbolism, often incorporating a strong social element. In particular, her work has been heavily influenced by her time with the indigenous and migrant communities of Mexico – namely, the Zapotec, Mixtec, and Seri communities. Her portraiture has been described as ‘anthropoetic’ for its twin desires to document Mexican ethnic communities, and her commitment to an intimately poetic style of portraiture which is often labelled surreal.

Iturbide was born in Mexico City, Mexico, in 1942. Iturbide studied photography under Manuel Alvarez Bravo at the Centro Universitario de Estudios Cinematograficos. Iturbide has authored several publications with publishers such as Phaidon, Aperture, and the J. Paul Getty Museum. For the last several decades, her work has exhibited internationally, most notably the touring exhibition ‘Graciela Iturbide’s Mexico’, which was displayed at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Minneapolis Museum of Art, and the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington.  Most recently, Iturbide exhibited at the Tate Modern in 2013. Iturbide currently resides in Coyoacán, Mexico.
