MÉXICO LINDO

Titled in tribute to the famous song, “México lindo y querido”—whose lyrics evoke a sentiment of love of the homeland—this exhibition celebrates the beauty of Mexico as seen through both native and foreign eyes. Presenting more than 100 photographs drawn from the Wittliff’s permanent collection, México lindo explores subjects that illuminate the diversity of the country’s landscapes, speak to the dignity of the individual, and reveal the importance of family, community, tradition, and faith. Images by 49 photo­journalists and fine-art photographers span in date from modern to contemporary and represent a variety of printing techniques.
