What drew Tina Modotti and Edward Weston to Mexico? How did the country's postrevolutionary culture reorient their approaches to photography? Gand offers a closer look at the motives behind Modotti and Weston's remarkable pictures and shares insights into their joint legacy, as well as their distinctly individual careers.
