Graciela Iturbide

On the occasion of the retrospective of Graciela Iturbide's work at Tate Modern, we share this interview with the artist produced by TateShots. There, the Mexican photographer talks about the works featured in the exhibition, which were created during the course of several trips to places like India and the Seri community in Mexico's Sonora desert.

In the video, Graciela Iturbide addresses her preference for black and white analog photography and the photographic contact sheets that allow her to visualize in depth that which she calls a "traveling notebook." She uses it to select and organize the images that she finds more appealing for her exhibitions. Iturbide's black and white photographs reveal her interest for capturing instants that she finds surprising or charged with emotion, through a process that, according to her, is an excuse to learn about the culture being photographed.
