Luces y Sombras: Images of Mexico | Photographs from the Bank of America Collection

The photographs in Luces y Sombras reflect a broad span of Mexico’s modern history, beginning with the post-Revolutionary era up until the present day. With work by 28 photographers, both native Mexican and foreign-born, this exhibition provides vivid testimony to the character of life in a nation in the throes of reinvention, modernization, and continued change, over the course of the last century.
