Luis Márquez Romay.Michoacán. Álbum dedicado al Sr. Lic. Gabino Vázquez.
México, D.F., marzo de 1936. 37.5x26. Album fotográfico de 98 hojas. Un fotografía de 12x18.5 montada en cada hoja (vertical o apaisada), firmada L. Márquez; cada foto está enmarcada con cuatro líneas trazadas a mano, con el título rotulado con una bella letra decó. Las tapas llevan el título rotulado en pintura roja en la delantera, con la dedicatoria 'México D.F., marzo de 1936. Respetuosamente Pedro J. Caballero' en el interior de la posterior. The album contains 98 original photographs of Morelia, Pátzcuaro, Juanitzio and Uruapan. They include photos of colonial architecture, indigenous and popular images of life and work in these communities, as well as picturesque landscapes. The Mexican photographer Luis Márquez Romay (1899 – 1978) grew up in Cuba, where his family had moved during the Mexican Revolution and civil wars; it was in Havana that he started to study photography. When he returned to Mexico in 1921, he worked as an actor in silent films (he later wrote plots for films in the thirties), and filmed a number of documentaries. However he is best known for his work as a photographer of indigenous Mexicans and Mexican landscapes. This album includes some of the finest popular and indigenous work that we have seen by this photographer.Beyond his indigenous and landscape work, Márquez Romay is also highly regarded for his architectural photography, which was the subject of an exhibition in the Museo de Arquitectura in the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City in 1999, with the title Una ciudad imaginaria. Arquitectura mexicana de los siglos XIX y XX en fotografías de Luis Márquez. Approximately half the photographs in this album are architectural.A number of Márquez Romay’s photographs from this series were published in the May 1937 number of National Geographic, (we have included a copy of this issue with the album.)The photographs themselves are in near perfect condition, with no tears, fold, spotting or other defects. The cord that threaded through the covers and the card on which the photos are mounted has partly perished, there are some tears to the card, some loss of margins, and some of the eyelets through which the cord was threaded have torn, mainly due to a slight brittleness of the card. If required, this can be professionally restored.Very few of Márquez Romay’s original photographs have been offered for sale over the last years.Márquez Romay’s bibliography includes the following publications:Folklore Mexicano. Eugenio Fischgrund, Mexico, n.d. (1950?). Published in English as Mexican Folklore by the same Publisher.Trajes Regionales Mexicanos de la Colección de Luis Márquez.
