Acclaimed as one of Mexico’s most important and admired photographers and photojournalists, Héctor Garcia described photojournalism as one of the most dangerous and attractive professions - trapped between the demands of information and aesthetics. A master of both Garcia over six decades, produced no less than a million often startling images. He received Mexico’s National Journalism Award three times and also managed to photograph some of the most celebrated personalities of the twentieth century, along with the street people and workers who populated his beloved Mexico City.
Some people are defeated by the desperate nature of early childhood poverty, but Héctor Garcia was not one of them. His strength and determination not only allowed him to break out of the confines of his youth but to master both the challenges of an award-winning career as a star photojournalist, and the artistry needed to produce critical social documentary portraits that became a signature of his work.
Among images for which Héctor Garcia was best known are those that expressed his social consciousness including the 1968 student uprising, a 1960 image of painter David Alfaro Siqueiros behind the bars of the Palacio de Lecumberri prison and the 1958 protest of teachers, students and workers in solidarity with a railroad strike.
Death, religion, politics, and art were located as regions of identity by Garcia’s gaze, which was always careful of extracting allegories out of everyday facts, out of the reality that is evident to the eye, both in urban areas and in native communities.
In over 65 individual exhibitions of his work, Garcia came to be known for the emotional strength captured in the faces and postures of the ordinary and extraordinary people he shot. Today his images are in private and public collections in Paris, Washington, Houston, Mexico City and the Vatican as well as celebrated collections such as The Wittliff Collection. He was awarded the Mexican National Journalism Award three times.
Garcia’s career was championed by many important figures and his mentors included Celuloide magazine director Edmundo Valdés who recognized Garcia’s potential and sent him to the Academia Mexicana de Artes Y Ciencias Cinematográficas. There he studied both still photography and movie making with Manuel Alvarez Bravo and Gabriel Figueroa. Alvarez Bravo also sparked Garcia’s penchant for depicting the everyday life of lower class people in Mexico City. He took to avoiding the picturesque and was considered the first to really focus on class distinctions.
In 2008 the Héctor Garcia Foundation in Mexico City for permanent and temporary exhibitions. The foundation administers Garcia’s vast archives and hosts exhibitions by other artists. The Mexican government has a plan to preserve, categorize and digitalize the entire collection.
