Black & White photographs of México’s History on display

There is an exhibit that is taking place at the Mexican Institute on Marine Parade. It’s called Mexico Black and White: Photographic Images of Yucatan. The Images and a video of Mexico’s unfolding history in the early twentieth century are all captured in black and white. Earlier this week, Press Officer for the Embassy of Mexico, Marcelino Miranda, spoke to us about the history that is on display.

Marcelino Miranda, Press Officer, Embassy of Mexico

Marcelino Miranda

“It includes photographs about the beginning of the twenty century in México especially Yucatan and neighboring Yucatan. The images are very interesting because we have a view about the beginning of the twentieth century, about the everyday life and the beginning of Mexican revolution—this war that completely transformed México especially in social political and economic relations and especially has consequences in the culture of México. And at the same time, you are going to have a chance to look at the everyday life and some interesting pictures about the Merida Carnival—I’m talking about 1906 to 1924.”

Jose Sanchez

“The Merida Carnival, speak to the images, what is it? What do we see?”

Marcelino Miranda

“These pictures at the Merida Carnival, you are going to see pictures about people posing having the Mexican flag dressed up in costumes. You are also going to see some very strange pictures of people posing in exotic costumes and people posing next to a car—this is the beginning fo the automobile industry as well. So these images are about México as it started to transform, started to modernize but at the same keeping the traditions.

You are going to have a chance to look at two unique films that were assembled from many film files of the beginning of the twentieth century and we are talking about the beginning of the film history. And this is a good opportunity for Belizeans especially the young people to come and look at these images and these unique films especially we are going to see the beginning of journalism. We are going to see the first films about the Mexican revolution.”

The images span from 1906 to 1923. The public is invited to view the exhibit and learn more about Mexico’s history in photos until the exhibit closes on February twenty fourth.

The photography exhibition “Mexico: Black & White, Images of Yucatan (1906-1923)”, sponsored by the Institute of Mexico, will open on March 3rd, 2011, at the House of Culture of El Benque, Cayo District.

The collection includes 29 photographs of Yucatan from 1906 to 1923 which belonged to the “Pedro Guerra” photography archives of the University of Yucatan’s Faculty of Anthropology, one of the most prestigious and valued photo archives in Mexico. The photographs portray the early 20 Century life in Yucatan, Mexico, and during the Mexican Revolution. This exhibition was previously showcased at the Institute of Mexico in Belize City from February 2nd to 24th.

In addition to admiring the artistic and historical value of the photographs presented, the main objective of the exhibition is to introduce the Belizean public, especially young people, with one of the most important periods in the history of Mexico: the Mexican Revolution. The Embassy of Mexico has embarked in a serious of activities and initiatives among Belizean children and young people, along with Belizean schools in order to enhance the cultural exchange and nurture mutual understanding between Belize and Mexico on the history and cultures of both countries.

The opening ceremony will be held on Thursday, March 3rd, at 5:30 pm, at the House of Culture of Benque. Entrance will be free and open to the general public. The exhibition will remain open until March 24th, 2011, Monday to Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
