Antonio Turok: The End of Silence
This exhibition is a brief look at a 40-year career of a one of Mexico’s most important documentary photographers. Here, Antonio Turok has documented the indigenous communities of Mexico such as the civil uprisings in Chiapas and Oaxaca, and has also photographed the civil wars of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Nicaragua, as well as the event changed the United States forever 9/11 in NYC. These haunting and ethereal images seek to document the humanity of displacement and loss.
“The difference between a photojournalist and a documentary photographer is that while the former seeks to record the event, the latter wonders why it happened, he creates a script in his head about what he wants to convey. The documentary photographer must study what he is going to photograph, being a kind of anthropologist, sociologist, having a background in art history, it is the only way in which the photographer can become an integral part of that experience. He must be passionate about the story he will document.” – Antonio Turok
