Meeting Graciela Iturbide.
As I was checking my Twitter this morning I saw a tweet that caught my attention. Basically, it said that Graciela Iturbide would be giving a conference this evening at Museo Amparo where, currently, there’s a two gallery exhibition showing an extensive selection of her work.
If you’re not familiar with her work, here’s the link to her website where you can both browse some galleries and read about her too. The quality of the images on her site does not make any justice to them though, seeing her work printed live is just amazing. Her use of film is incredible and she’s been a great source of inspiration for me ever since I first heard of her.
At the end of the conference there was some questions/answers time and then she stayed some time after it all ended to meet the audience. She signed two of my books too :)
Lovely lady, great conference.
