I discovered a few photographs made by Lola Álvarez Bravo, during the exhibit around Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. A lifelong friend of Frida Kahlo, she was taught photography by her husband Manuel Álvarez Bravo, continued as his assistant, but soon enough became recognized as a photojournalist and independent artist. Her photo archive is located at the Center of Creative Photography in Tucson, Arizona, USA. I particularly enjoyed her “burial in Yalalag” that echoed for me the “Srnigar, Kashmir” picture of Henri Cartier-Bresson.
