Maria Luz Bravo (1975, México) is a Mexican photographer who holds a bachelor in Architecture and a Master of Arts in New Media Photojournalism by the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design.
Her body of work revolves around the use of space, both urban and architectural in the contemporary urban landscape to highlight major social phenomena, focusing primarily on cities in conflict, political boundaries, and community resilience.
In Mexico, she has photographed the effects of violence in Ciudad Juarez and the political boundaries of México City. In the U.S. she has documented urban decline, racial segregation, and socioeconomic contrasts mainly on the east coast and the south.
The series “Reclaims” was selected to be part of the XVI Photography Biennale in México and her work has been exhibited, in Mexico and abroad. The Washington Post and the Virginia Quarterly Review among others have published her.
She was a 2020-2022 Hamiltonian Artists fellowship in Washington DC.
