Cuaron’s “Roma” and the Images of Manuel Alvarez Bravo

mab01b

Last sunday I was watching on Netflix “Roma” by Alfonso Cuaron, incredible movie, one of the best films I’ve seen this year (and I watch A LOT of movies). “Roma” is in black and white and the story tells daily life of a rich family in Mexico City in 1970, seen through the eyes of Cloe, “la nana”, one of the housemaids. Cuaron’s movie and style made me think a lot about Manuel Alvarez Bravo’s pictures. Bravo was one of the most important latin-american photographers ever: his work tells a lot about Mexico of the last century and “Roma” reminds me that. Here some images of Manuel Alvarez Bravo, a photographer that I invite you to know better.
