Nuestra Hermana WOC Photography Series :

Gracelia Iturbide

Graciela Iturbide is a 69 year old Mexican photographer born in 1942. Around 1970, Iturbide studied photography at the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico.

The majority of her photography is black & white and uses natural life and whichever environment she is submerged in at the time.

Her first collection released was titled “Mujer Angel” and embodied her feminist views which continued to be weaved through her career. Her best known collection was shot in Juchitan, Oaxaca, a city where women dominated life. It was titled “Señora de Las Iguanas”. Out of this series, came a photograph named “Magnolia”, featuring a physically male person wearing a dress. This photograph challenged and discussed sexuality and gender in Mexico.

She is also the founder of Mexican Council of Photography. Her work can be found in many major museums including but not limited to: Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the J. Paul Getty Museum.
