Curated by Alejandro Castellanos
When Pedro Meyer left behind his industrial activities in 1974 to devote himself fulltime to photography, it took him only three years to become a founding member and president of the Mexican Council of Photography and to organize the First Latin American Photography Colloquium.
Since that time, “his greatest contribution has taken place thanks to the balance that he has kept between reflection and practice . . ." because “Meyer’s ideas have triggered some of the major debates on images in Mexico and Latin America.” Alejandro Castellanos recalls the controversy.
