Dr. Ricardo Romo , Latinos in America : Substack , April 2, 2024
In the early 1980s Mexican photographer Graciela Iturbide distinguished herself as the most prominent photographer in Mexico and Latin America.  Recognition of her work with top awards in Paris and Japan over the next two decades solidified her international reputation.  In 2008 Iturbide won the Hasselblad Award, the highest distinction a photographer can receive. Iturbide’s photographs, including her famous portrait   “Mujer Angel [Angel Woman], are currently on exhibit at Ruiz Healy Gallery in a San Antonio exhibit. Gallery owner Patricia Ruiz-Healy followed Iturbide for many years and chose her work for the inaugural opening of Ruiz-Healy Gallery in 2006. The current exhibit is open until June 2024 and travels to Ruiz-Healy Gallery in New York City in 2025.
