Lola Álvarez Bravo, Unos suben otros bajan (Some go up and some go down), 1940, Colección Abierta
I don’t have great artistic pretensions, but if something useful results from my photographs, it will be as a chronicle of my country, my times, my people, how Mexico has changed. [I captured] images that affected me deeply, like electricity, and made me press the shutter; and not only with a great artistic sense, or great beauty and light and all, but also with a sense of humor, with that sort of play fulness that is so Mexican… and then also the terrible things, those that strike you with great pain, the misery and the suffering. — Lola Álvarez Bravo
