As I've mentioned in previous posts, one of my favorite museums is the Soumaya Museum here in Mexico City. There is a wonderful selection of art andacross a variety of genres.
Enjoying history as I do, particularly Mexican history, I was thrilled to see the following in the Museum:
"The Embrace" ("El Abrazo") by Jorge Gonzalez Camarena.
This painting references the Spanish conquest of Mexico - a Spanish knight and an Aztec Eagle warrior are depicted. The two are embracing as they kill one another - a symbol of the simultaneous fusion of the two cultures and the ending of each.
A project to document the stories of refugees who have relocated to Twin Falls, Idaho.
A great resource on learning how to light.
Follow the work of one of the great photographers of today.
Amazing images by an incredible visual artist.
Why buy it when you can have fun and build it?
