Brianna Cristiano submits Manuel Alvarez Bravo

Manuel Alvarez Bravo. Optical Parable. 1931

Manuel Alvarez Bravo is a photographer from Mexico City. I learned about him in my art history class and his work intrigued me. He is known for his juxtaposed photographs of window fronts and signs. In this photograph above called Optical Parable he has reversed the negative to trick the viewer. It is almost a humorous take on going to the eye doctor. His work is smart and I like the way he positions the compositions. He has thought about each one clearly and knows what statement he is trying to make and it comes across in his work.
