Past Exhibition

Glimpse, Gathered

María Luz Bravo

March 25–April 22, 2023

Amid her daily walks through the ubiquitous back alleys and sidewalks of Northwest DC, María Luz Bravo’s wandering gaze locates everyday artifacts that—when captured and gathered—gesture toward sentiment, oddity, and happenstance. The exhibited photographs and video works evidence things stumbled upon when Bravo allows chance and discovery to guide her otherwise purely routine activities. For Bravo, these everyday explorations offer an opportunity to encounter the neighborhood in new, more intimate ways. In her turning away from the appeal of manicured porches, she uncovers the ordinary sublime scattered throughout daily life.


María Luz Bravo (b. 1975, Puebla, Mexico; lives and works in Washington, DC) earned her MA in New Media Photojournalism from the George Washington University, Washington, DC (2018), and BA in Architecture from Universidad de las Américas in Puebla, Cholula, Mexico (2000).
