"The Edge of Time: Photographs of Mexico by Mariana Yampolsky" marks the beginning of the Wittliff Collections twenty-fifth anniversary exhibition schedule at Texas State University-San Marcos. This show featuring works from the permanent holdings runs from May 16th through December 11th, with other celebratory exhibitions to be added in August. "The Edge of Time" exhibition honors Mariana Yampolsky’s role in the Wittliff Collections’ history with nearly 60 silver-gelatin photographs of Mexico she created during the 30-year span of 1964 to 1994. “Reflecting moments,” as she said, “in the lives of people that others perhaps don’t see or don’t value,”

Yampolsky’s images capture rural Mexico with infinite respect and care, the situations, traditions, customs, and rituals of those who live there, and the weight of religion and the creativity in daily life. "The Edge of Time: Photographs of Mexico" was originally organized by the Wittliff Collections in 1996 and toured with Exhibits USA from 1996 through 1999. It is also the title of the second volume, published in 1998, in the Wittliff’s award-winning book series with the University of Texas Press. Still in print, it is available for purchase through the Wittliff’s online gift shop. Read more »
