Laughing Mannequins
Laughing Mannequins
By Manuel Alvarez Bravo
Photographer, Mexico, Active in the 1930's
Recent exhibition at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles. Postmodernism in the 30's. Go to Masters of Photography to see Alvarez Bravo's work. Manuel Alvarez Bravo saw and captured in his photographs the crazy juxtaposition of the prosperity and joy of capitalist consumerism juxtaposed against the poverty and despair of Mexico City in the 30's. He captured this in this photo of hangers of smiling young women, typical of the happy consumerist markets of the U.S., juxtaposed against this outdoor stall in the markets of Mexico City. The perspective of one world meets the perspective of the other. Alvarez Bravo captured the voice of the Other in his photographs. The Other, our neighbor, Mexico.
