Tuesday, May 7, 2013, Aperture presented a talk and book signing with Mexican Portraits photographer and editor Pablo Ortiz Monasterio. Mexican Portraits, co-published by Aperture and Fundación Televisa, includes more than 350 portraits by over eighty anonymous and well-known photographers, including Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Agustín V. Casasola, Romualdo García, Graciela Iturbide, and Enrique Metinides. Monasterio discusses the process of selecting and sequencing the photographs to tell a history of Mexico, as well as reflects on Mexican identity, both individual and collective.

This event was made possible with the support of the Mexican Cultural Institute of New York and the Mexican Tourism Board.
