The work of the celebrated 20th Century photographer Manuel Álvarez Bravo is to appear in a new exhibition at The Photographers Gallery. 'Everyday Theatre' will showcase a selection of rare lifetime prints from the late photographer who is best known for his modernism approach to photography.

Considered one of the most important figures in Latin photography, Manuel Álvarez Bravo’s career began when he was just a teenager. Until 1923 when he came into contact with Edward Weston and Tina Modotti, Álvarez Bravo was largely self-taught. He would later be introduced to fellow Mexican artists Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo who appear in many of his images.
