    War, indigenous cultures and inner transformation ferment in "Revolution and Ritual: The Photographs of Sara Castrejón, Graciela Iturbide and Tatiana Parcero. Dr. Mary MacNaughton" will lead a tour of the exhibition and speak about the works of three Mexican women photographers who explore and transform notions of Mexican identity in images that range from the documentary to the poetic.While Castrejón's photos portray people under the intense pressure of war, Graciela Iturbide's images shed light on life in Mexico's indigenous cultures. Tatiana Parcero takes the medium in yet another direction, creating self-portraits that incorporate spliced images of her body with cosmological maps and Aztec codices.By bringing their work into conversation, Revolution and Ritual invites readers to consider how photography has been transformed over the past century in Mexico and how it continues to respond to artists' interest in representing present and past, self and other.
