Messico 1935/1956 - Josef Albers

£22.00

Josef and Anni Albers began their travels to Mexico in 1935, drawn to a country very unlike the United States. They were not in search of the exotic but rather of the traces of ancient pre-Colombian civilisations (the Mayans and the Aztecs) and testimonies of the everyday lives of a population that was very poor yet full of vitality. Dressed in dark colours and donning a large black hat, Albers was a non-professional photographer with the gaze of an architect, as may be noted from the great sense of composition and the search for geometries which he digs out even from the millenary archaeological findings. The volume also features an introduction by Brenda Danilowitz, curator and head of the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, as well as an essay by Luca Galofaro, Professor (LSGMA) and curator (CAMPO, Rome).
