Throckmorton Fine Art is pleased to announce our upcoming exhibition, FLOR by Flor Garduño. This exhibition will feature platinum prints of the masterworks taken by Garduño who has enjoyed a widely acclaimed and highly successful career that has spanned over more than twenty years. Not only a brilliant photographer, Garduño is recognized as a master printer as this very special exhibition will attest. The stunning imagery captured through the lens of Flor Garduño is a true testament to all that is Latin America.
Born in Mexico City, she studied Visual Arts at Escuela Nacional de Artes Plastica (Universidad Nacional de Mexico) and between 1978-80 worked in the studios of Kati Horna and the late Manuel Alvarez Bravo. Under the sponsorship of the Institito Nacional Indigenista, she traveled with a team of photographers organized by the very talented late photographer, Mariana Yampolsky to photograph rural villages throughout Mexico in 1981-82.
