Mexican photographer Flor Garduño shows work in New York

New York (Notimex) - New York City's Throckmorton Fine Art gallery will host an exhibition with selected work by Mexican photographer Flor Garduño.

Garduño is regarded as one of Latin America's most influential photographers.

The exhibition will be open until February 25 next year, and will show 30 black and white pieces.

"Garduño's photographs offer poetic images taken from nature, dreams and feminine forms. Her images, usually with only a few elements, are elegant and highly suggestive," said the curators of the exhibition.

They added that Garduño's work has dream-like and surreal qualities, giving her pictures a "mystical" tone.

Garduño studied at the San Carlos Academy, part of Mexico's national autonomous university better known by its Spanish initials, UNAM. In 1979 se began working as an assistant to one of Latin America's greatest photographers, Manuel Álvarez Bravo.

Garduño's work has been exhibited at New York's Museum of Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago and the National Library of France, among others.
