Piedras (Stones) presents previously unpublished works made over several decades by Mexican photographer Graciela Iturbide. Using a 6x6 format camera, Iturbide has focused her lens on some particular piedras. Even if sometimes what she photographs is distinctly a stone, other times it is rather just something made out of stone, such as an old Italian city. For Piedras, Iturbide has recuperated a number of black and white images ‒ photographs that are as unique as they are beautiful ‒ made in her many travels through Europe, Asia and America.
Graciela Iturbide (born 1942), a winner of the 2008 Hasselblad Foundation Award for Photography, has been acclaimed as one of Latin America’s greatest photographers for her photographic exploration of her native Mexico’s landscapes and inhabitants in stark black and white.
