Photographic Integrity and the Vital Link with Environment

Maria Martinez-Canas, Totem Negro VIII, 1991

About the Exhibition

Four female photographers addressed issues of representation of unfamiliar cultures.  Errazuriz examined society outside mainstream Chile.  Graciela Iturbide documented the women of Juchitan, a town in Mexico on the Isthmus of Tehuantepec–one of the only places where women administer and govern their environment.  Maria Martinez-Canas explored her relationship to the land, religion, and history of her native Cuba in highly-charged photo-collages.  Sentis photographed the African Diaspora in Brazil.
