Graciela Iturbide’s Mexico

Minneapolis Institute of Art

9780878468584

Graciela Iturbide, best known for her iconic photographs of Mexican indigenous women, has engaged with her homeland as a subject for the past 50 years in images of great variety and depth. The intensely personal, lyrical photographs collected and interpreted in this book show that, for Iturbide, photography is a way of life―as well as a way of seeing and understanding Mexico, with all its beauties, rituals, challenges and contradictions.
The Mexico portrayed here is a country in constant transition, defined by tensions and exchanges between new and old, urban and rural, traditional and modern. Iturbide’s deep connection with her subjects―among them political protests, celebrations and rituals, desert landscapes, cities, places of burial and Mexico’s artistic heritage―produces indelible images that encompass dreams, symbols, reality and daily life.
Published to accompany the first major museum exhibition of Iturbide’s work on the East Coast, this volume presents more than 100 beautifully reproduced black-and-white photographs, accompanied by illuminating essays inviting readers to share in Graciela Iturbide’s personal artistic journey through the country she knows so intimately.
