Frida & Diego Mexico City Tour-Day 3

Day 3 of the Frida & Diego Mexico City Tour kicked-off with a visit to the Memorial of Benito Juarez in the heart of the city. Our guides shared their insight and provided an opportunity to learn more about this revered president”s place in history and his progressive reforms. Other sites visited included the Museo Mural Diego Rivera to view the well-known “Sunday Afternoon in the Alameda Central” mural, the Palacio de Bellas Artes to learn more about México’s other illustrious muralists including Siqueiros, Tamayo and Camarena. The upper floor’s mezzanine contains the Rivera’s the 2nd version of the controversial JD Rockefeller commission “Man at the Crossroads”. Our last stop of the day was the Museo de Arte Modern in Chapultepec Park.

About FotoVentures Photo-Graphic Art

I have had a passion for photography since first using my Dad’s 35 mm camera as a teenager. The amazing digital innovations that have revolutionized the photographic arts in recent years have only served to heighten my passion for the art form. Modern digital photography, along with use of the basic principles of color, composition and design afford today’s photographers endless artistic expression. Each photograph is part of a process, the result of research, experimentation, persistence, accident and luck. More recently in a search, for new markets for my photography, I have started writing short articles wrapping them around my photography for publication. You can see more of my work at www.fotoventures.net.
