Collection Historical Note

Antíoco Cruces and Luis Campa were perhaps the most successful Mexican photographers in the latter half of the 19th century.  Both attended the prestigious Academy de San Carlos art school in Mexico City and were supported by fellow photographer, Jose Maria de la Torre, who worked with them between 1863 and 1866.  They established the firm of Cruces y Campa that won a bronze medal for artistic merit at the International Exposition held in Philadelphia in 1876, and proved their excellent business savvy by using new photographic technology to market series of images of people including those of Mexican people in the daily life (Occupationals) and later of famous people in Mexican history (Gobernantes).The use of the cartes-de-visite format was a specialty of Cruces y Campa, who were pioneers of the medium in Mexico. Though the firm and the professional partnership of Cruces y Campa was dissolved in 1877,  Antíoco Cruces remained active as a photographer, and it is possible that Luis Campa did as well, though his career is unknown after that time.
