Revolutionary Photos

O.K. folks….this is your last chance to see a truly great show of photos by the photographer Augustin Casasola. Between 1900 and 1940 he documented life in Mexico during and after the Mexican revolution…some are ‘just’ good records of the time, many others are mindblowing on any level. Many formats were used, some of the best are large format view camera work..yes, he was covering the revolution; riots, executions, Emiliano Zapata, and all with a view camera….and they kick the ass of at least 99% of the photojournalistic work of today. See it and weep…then get inspired and hit the road. Its at the Museo del Barrio here in NYC, but only until July 31st.

sounds wonderful…its one of my great laments about living in Toronto (for now)…museums/archival material…….I dont know much about Casasola other then a few iconic images…but, strangely, some magnificent red/sepia images seem to stay in my mind: i think I saw them in Santa Barbara Museum when I lived in LA…are any of the images in the show sepia or strangely red?…i do remember thinking: damn, that’s ridiculously beautiful and "modern"….keep and eye open for me, as i’ll probably be in the city sometime in october……letter coming your way…….bob
