Mexican photography exhibit at Sky Harbor Airport proves a sight for soar eyes

Graciela Iturbide also borrows from fantasy with works such as Cayo del Cielo or Island in the Sky. With such a title, one wouldn't expect the simplicity and minimalism of the final image: a woman, shown from neck to feet, draped in a willowy dress of pure white. Shown against the dark alleyway background, the woman does stand out as the name suggests.

Apparently, the show was so large that even the cavernous halls of Terminal 4 were too small for the entire haul. The remainder of the show, some 20 more works, can be found in a small room at the Mexican Consulate on 19th Avenue and Camelback. Though a visit to the consulate is about as entertaining as a visit to the airport with no arrivals or departures to speak of, this show would make the trip worthwhile.

José Hernandez-Claire's "Flor de Tabaco" is one of the many strong pieces on exhibit in Terminal 4.
