Legs: Álvarez Bravo, Erwitt

There is a new book and online essay commissioned by Magnum: Elliot Erwitt's Personal Best. One of the pics has a strong similarity to another one made by Manuel Álvarez Bravo in the Centro Histórico. This one is particularly appealing for me, since the add refers to the business of an uncle of mine (bought by Carlos Slim few years ago, hélas!). I also worked as a teenager for Hubard y Bourlon in order to go to Cuba, but I spent the money rather jumping from an airplane with a parachute.
