This classic image was taken in 1911 during the Mexican revolution by the German emigré Hugo Brehme. An iconic image, which had a great influence on various 20th century Mexican artists.
Hugo Brehme, born in Germany in 1882, arrived in Mexico in 1908. Though he expected his visit to be relatively brief, he spent the rest of his life in Mexico and is considered one of the founders of Mexican pictorialist photography. His early photographs were documentary, and include views of the Mexican Revolution.
This image was printed during the 1970s using Brehme's negatives by the Bazar de la Fotografía Casasola in Mexico City, a famous archive containing photographs of Mexico from 1900 until the early 1970s.
