According to curators of the exhibition, “Garduño’s photographs offer poetic images taken of nature, dreams and feminine forms”, which certainly makes her work something worthy of appreciation for all those art lovers.

Garduño studied at the San Carlos Academy of the UNAM, and before finding her passion in photography, her work focused on painting, however in 1979, she began working as an assistant to Manuel Álvarez Bravo, who at the time was considered one of the most important photographers in Latin America.

 

 

It was Alvarez Bravo who impelled Garduño to the world of photography, and who later pushed her to begin to develop her own style.
