About this collection

Manuel Carrillo, 1906-1989, was a Mexican photographer who is best known for documenting traditional Mexico.  His photographs depict people, animals, and scenes from Mexican towns and villages. The University of Texas at El Paso purchased his papers and photographs from his widow in 1990.  This selection of photographs from Carrillo’s own list of most-requested or exhibited images was scanned from the original negatives or from contact sheets; the images shown in this online collection are full-frame, although he often cropped the images for a different composition or emphasis.  Carrillo assigned reference numbers to the images and described them in a sort of short-hand style: his descriptions are not titles per se, since he generally exhibited his photographs as untitled.
