Staircase, Mexico by Tina Modotti (1925)

The photograph titled “Staircase, Mexico” was captured by artist Tina Modotti in 1925. The image depicts an architectural structure, focusing on a staircase and its accompanying banister. The perspective and composition emphasize the geometry and forms created by the interaction of light and shadow on the stairs, banister, and the surrounding walls. The photograph is monochromatic, highlighting textures and tonal contrasts that give the simple scene a sense of depth and structure. The play of light generates distinct lines and shapes, which creates an abstract quality within the work, making it not only a representation of an object but also an exploration of form and composition.
