Art reception: April 3 from 6 - 8 p.m.

The Consulado de Mexico en Albuquerque is sponsoring a new art exhibition featuring the photography of Augustín Casasola (1874 – 1938) opening on Thursday, April 3rd in the KiMo Theatre Gallery. A free public reception will be held from 6 – 8 p.m. opening day.

Augustín Casasola began his career as a typographer for the newspaper El Imparcial, eventually moving into reporting, then became a photographer in the late 1800s. He was credited with founding the first Mexican press agency, Agencia Fotograpfica Mexicana, and was later thanked the interim president for having “inaugurated a new phase of freedom in the press photography.”

In 1920, Casasola and other notable Mexican photographers founded the Mexican Association of Press Photographers.
