Graciela Iturbide

This video brought to you by Tate.org.uk

Whether capturing images of Frida Kahlo's house, wild dogs in India, or the Seri people in Mexico's Sonoran desert, Mexican photographer Graciela Iturbide presents the world in black in white, or as she describes it, as "an abstraction of the mind." Travelling with her camera every day and often living with her subjects for months, Iturbide says that her process is similar to that of a travel photographer, except that she only shoots "what surprises and provokes an emotion that I want to capture.".
