  • Maria Martinez-Canas, Totem Negro XI, 1991

Four female photographers addressed issues of representation of unfamiliar cultures.  Errazuriz examined society outside mainstream Chile by Photographing prostitutes, transvestites, boxers, and wrestlers.  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.
