Opening reception with Harvey Stein, March 6, 6-8pm
“Harvey Stein’s fascination with Mexico began when he was a teenager. Compared to the ordinary surroundings of his youth in Pittsburgh, Mexico seemed a mysterious, extraordinary place that was nearby, yet so far away. When he became a professional photographer, Stein knew his photography was the perfect way to immerse himself in Mexico — to partake in ceremonies, meet the people, and express his interest and love of the country. 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, which published last fall, is the definitive expression of the photographer’s intimate relationship with the people and culture of Mexico.”
