This special exhibition of 35 signed, gelatin silver prints by the acclaimed Mexican photographer Rodrigo Moya, is the first New York show dedicated to the work of Rodrigo Moya, (Mexico 1934).
The photographer’s candid images run the gamut from the revolution leader Che Guevara to painter Diego Rivera and Venezuelan guerillas to street children. Moya was the only Latin American to cover the US invasion of the Dominican Republic and the battle for Santo Domingo in April 1965.
Moya’s contributions to the field of photography have been recognized in the museum world at large. His images can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, among others. A number of renowned private collectors also have considerable holdings of his work.
In 2007, Moya was awarded the Medal of Photographic Merit by Mexico’s National System of Photographic Archives. Two years later, his work was highlighted in the documentary film Conciencia de Luz: Rodrigo Moya,, Fotografo.
