Graciela Iturbide

Graciela Iturbide was born in 1942 in Mexico City. Her mentor was Mexican modernist photographer Manuel Alvarez Bravo who she assisted on various photographic journeys throughout Mexico in her twenties. During the 1970s, Iturbide traveled widely across Latin America and Panama where she developed an interest in documentary style ethnographic photography.

“In 1979 she was invited by the artist Francisco Toledo to photograph the Juchitán people who form part of the Zapotec culture native to Oaxaca in southern Mexico. Iturbide’s series that started in 1979 and runs through to 1988 resulted in the publication of her book ‘Juchitán de las Mujeres’ in 1989.”
