Nacho Lopez : Revelations and Miracles
Nacho Lopez
Revelations and Miracles
M.C., December 20, 2006
Born in 1923 and died in 1986, Nacho López was one of Mexico's best photojournalists. Few have launched such intense social criticism or delved so deeply in what it is to be Mexican than he did during the 1950s. Yet his work is hardly known outside of his country.

López (whose full name is Ignacio "Nacho" López Bocanegra) honed his social conscience during the 1930s, those years of world depression, international intellectual ferment, proletarian protest, and progressive Cardenista land and labor reforms. Two decades later, the nation had settled into a modernist trajectory planned and directed by a corrupt and favoritist one-party system. López was there with his camera to catch the results, which were then published as photo essays in the capital's most popular picture magazines.
