Lola Álvarez Bravo

"I was the only woman fooling around with a camera in the streets and all the reporters laughed at me. So I became a fighter."

Looking at this second photo, I feel like there's an ocean somewhere inside of me, like there are possibilities, and they will be beautiful. I want to print it the size of a wall, not because it's pretty, but because I think it will inspire me to be brave. Some people display their saints sitting on a shelf, but sometimes you need to keep them closer to your heart, a collection of women who have done this all before.
