Renowned Mexican photographer Antonio Turok will provide a lecture based on his black-and-white photographs taken of the indigenous people of Chiapas and Oaxaca and in Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua. For over three decades, Antonio Turok has traveled through his native Mexico and Central America, capturing images that speak of the human condition in places like Nicaragua, Salvador, Guatemala, and the southern Mexican states of Chiapas and Oaxaca. Though documentary in nature, the soft, black-and-white photographs Mr. Turok creates seem otherworldly, like ghostly reminders of another place or time. Turok’s work has been collected by numerous museums and private collections in Mexico, Europe, and the United States. This includes the Los Angeles County Museum of Fine Arts, The Museum of Mexican Art in Chicago, Wittliff Gallery of Mexican, and Southwestern Photography in San Marcos, Texas, and many more. Mr. Turok lives with his family in Oaxaca, Mexico, where he continues to give workshops on documentary photography.
