Photographs from the California Museum of Photography collection presented in this exhibition represent Mexico’s rich and diverse 20th century photography tradition, with works by Manuel Carillo, Graciela Iturbide, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Pedro Meyer, José Kuri Breña, Mariana Yampolsky, and many more. The UC Riverside California Museum of Photography (CMP) was founded in 1973 with a gift of photographs, cameras, and books. In subsequent years, the CMP has grown its collection to approximately 750,000 objects including photographs, negatives, cameras, and a robust library, making it among the largest and most diverse photography collections in the United States. Strengths include the Keystone-Mast stereoscopic archive, the archives of several commercial photographers (including images that Ansel Adams produced of the University of California as work-for-hire in the 1960s), and encyclopedic collections of several major camera manufacturers. The CMP’s fine art photography collection includes significant examples of 19th century, modernist, and contemporary images. Through exhibitions, collections, and publications, the CMP examines the history of photography and showcases contemporary works in photography and new media.
