Graciela Iturbide: 50 Years of Photography

The eldest of 13 children born in 1942 in Mexico City to a traditional Mexican family, Graciela Iturbide got her first camera at age 11, inspired by the photographs her father had taken. Iturbide had not begun as a still photographer.  She had originally enrolled in film school at the Centro de Estudios Cinematográficos at the Universidad Nacional Autónama de México but was drawn to still photography when she met Manuel Alvarez Bravo, who was teaching there.  He became her mentor and she assisted him on a number of photographic shoots throughout Mexico. Iturbide was viewed as the natural successor to Manuel Alvarez Bravo. It was Bravo who told her, “There is always time for the pictures you want.” His work influenced her until his death at age 100 in 2002.

Brittany Markert/Photographer Interview

My scenes are the results of following a path of euphoria, and waiting patiently until I am excited about everything involved — the people, the location, the props and most importantly, the energy and emotions present. This is the die-hard romantic in me, letting love and feelings guide my inspiration. Sometimes I wait as long as three months for the perfect energy and circumstances to make a picture. I am inspired by theatre, literature, films and daydreams, to name a few, and want my work to have a narrative sensibility acted out in familiar or dreamlike structures.

History…

The name Ragazine was coined in the mid-’70s in Columbus, Ohio, as the title of an alternative newspaper/magazine put together by a group of friends. It was revived in 2004 as ragazine.cc, the on-line magazine of arts, information and entertainment, a collaboration of artists, writers, poets, photographers, travelers and interested others. And that’s what it still is.
