OPENING RECEPTION WITH THE ARTIST: NOVEMBER 6
“Harvey Stein’s fascination with Mexico began when he was a teenager. Compared to the ordinary surroundings of his youth in Pittsburgh, Mexico seemed an extraordinary place that was nearby, yet so far away. When he became a professional photographer he knew this was his chance to immerse himself in Mexico. During fourteen trips between 1993 and 2010, he photographed in Mexico, primarily in small towns and villages and mostly during festivals (Day of the Dead, Easter, Independence Day) that highlight the country’s unique relationship with death, myth, ritual and religion. Mexico Between Life and Death is the definitive expression of the photographer’s intimate relationship with the people and culture of Mexico.”
