INTERNATIONAL FORUM: Postcards from Oaxaca: Sixty Years of Landscape Change, Apr. 30
In the 1940s Gustavo Bellón, the France’s consular agent in Oaxaca, invited Alfonso Rivas Bañuelos, a young photographer, to move from Mexico City to Oaxaca to produce photographic postcards of the region. From the 1940s until the 1960s, Sr. Rivas created a large collection of images of Oaxaca. These photographs provide a record of landscapes that have weathered waves of modernization, historic preservation and persistent population growth. This presentation, by Dr. Scott Brady (Department of Geography and Planing) utilizes repeat photography to take another look at these landscapes.
