Every year the Joyce Gordon Gallery presents the "Glimpses in Time" exhibit to honor a Master Photographer. This year we celebrate Manuel Álvarez Bravo, a Mexican photographer born in 1902. Bravo's work not only documents life in Mexico but also visually explores a surrealistic approach to the composition of his photographic subject.
