Converging looks gathers emblematic images of the 20th century, the work of three great masters of photography: Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans and Manuel Álvarez Bravo. The book is published in line with the exhibition of the Museum of the Palace of Fine Arts in Mexico City, which echoes the historic exhibition dedicated to the same photographers at the Julien Levy Gallerry (New York, 1935). The texts propose a critical and historical reading of the photographs, within the scope of their vast universal resonances.

This book accompanies an exhibition which was a recreation of an exhibition from 1935 at the Julien Levy Gallery: "Documentary and Anti-Graphic Photographs by Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans and Álvarez Bravo." The exhibition was organized by Emilio Amero. Langston Hughes wrote "Pictures More than Pictures" which referenced images by Cartier-Bresson and Álvarez Bravo which were in this exhibition. (Hughes and Cartier-Bresson shared an apartment in Mexico.) It is always interesting to find out about connections like this.

The format of the book is large, the better to see the photographs.
