El Color by Manuel Alvarez Bravo (1966)

The photograph titled “El Color” was taken by the artist Manuel Alvarez Bravo in 1966. The image shows a person leaning against a brightly colored wall with a broom in hand. There is a strong contrast between the warm hues of the wall and the person’s clothing, as well as the textures of the painted wall and the exposed brick beside it. The subject is captured in a candid moment of repose or contemplation, and the photograph exudes a sense of quietude and reflection within an everyday setting. The natural light highlights the wall’s vibrant color, which appears to be the focal point of the image, aptly reflected in the photograph’s title “El Color” (The Color).
