El Ojo Fino

June 5 – October 5, 2003

This exhibition celebrated the works of nine distinguished Mexican women photographers. Their personal lives and professional experiences were uniquely connected over the span of three generations and an entire century. These photographers are strong individuals who show great respect for their subjects, representing socially, politically, and culturally diverse populations of Mexico. The Mexican Fine Arts Center Museum launched the national tour of this exhibition.
