Centro Fotográfico Manuel Álvarez Bravo
El Centro Fotográfico Manuel Álvarez Bravo (CFMAB) was formed as a nonprofit association in September 1996 by Francisco Toledo. Located in a colonial era home, it has rooms for temporary exhibitions devoted to photography, and a library specializing in history, theory, technique and dissemination of photography. There is also an associated Music Library with recordings of various music genres (classical, jazz, blues, ethnic, etc.).
Workshops, book presentations and portfolios, screenings and guided tours are offered by the Photographic Center as part of commitment to promoting photographic work. It has a black and white professional laboratory, used in workshop sessions and can be used by previously accredited photographers.
The photographic collection Joseph F. Gómez was established in 1989 with collections of Joseph F. Gomez, Ignacio Zanabria and Manuel Alvarez Bravo acquired by Francisco Toledo.
