Saundes Fine Arts POTD - "Retrato de lo Eterno" by Manuel Alvarez Bravo

This photograph stopped me in my tracks last month at the San Antonio Museum of Art. My terrible photo of it doesn't begin to do it justice. Grateful that I got to see it in person, and for the deeper dive into Manuel Alvarez Bravo's work that it led to. - Kimberly
