Photographic: The Life of Graciela Iturbide Reviews

  • Krystal

    With lyrical words from Isabel Quintero, insightful illustrations by Zeke Pena, and striking photos from Graciela Iturbide, this book impresses with how it illuminates this radical trailblazer's path!

  • Becky B

    A graphic novel biography of an innovative photographer best known for her photos of Mexican communities.

    The text in this reads like poetry. It’s a lyrical explanation for how Iturbide sees the world and what motivates her. It’s a poetic explanation of the various cultures and places she’s photographed and how they’ve influenced the way she sees the world (and how she hopes she’s influenced the world to see these cultures). It’s actually pretty deep for a nonfiction book. I can see literature cl

    Not a photographer I was familiar with. This a stunningly creative depiction of her evolution as an artist, a mix of story, poetry, photos, and graphic novel.

    Thank you to Harry N. Abrams and Netgalley for providing me with a review copy.

    I will admit, I don't usually like reading biographies. However, I will happily devour graphic novels, and this one sits at the intersection of those two genres. Photographic explored the life of Graciela Iturbide, a Mexican photographer. Her work has been in museums and galleries internationally, and I'm glad I got to know her through Photographic because I might not have heard of her otherwise.

    I loved the illustrat

    Disclaimer: I received a free ARC in exchange for my review; however all thoughts and opinions are solely my own.

    Absolutely spectacular! The combination of graphic art and real photographs create a deeper connection to Graciela Iturbide's tale and path through life. It allows readers of any age to feel closer to the subject of this graphic novel style biography and I honestly feel like this is the best way to have portrayed her life.

  • Lauren

    An exemplary biography of Graceila Itrubide, a Mexican photographer and artist. Her work spans decades and themes, and this book traces her background, her training, and her inspirations. Some of her best known work is of the intersection between humans and nature, in her native Mexico. She has photographed a series of the indigenous Seris people of the Sonoran desert, as well as portraiture in Oaxaca, and natural landscapes.

    The bio includes many of her photographs, and graphic illustrations of

    The art of this graphic novel is beautiful, but it barely compares to the photographs taken by Graciela Iturbide. I was astonished that I'd never heard of this amazing photographer and incredibly glad that the authors of this volume provided a list of references for exploring her work. The photos are gorgeous, even when the subject matter is a bit rough. (I was not, for example, prepared for a beautifully composed but still disturbing shot of someone holding a slaughtered goat.) I can't recommen ...more

    I found it interesting to see how this woman, Graciela Iturbide, saw the world as a writer, a photographer, an artist. How she understood it through her lens.

    What I loved the most was how she travelled all around the word and tried to capture things that weren’t usual, things that people didn’t care to look at, didn’t care to see. That was beautiful.

    What was also beautiful was the way this depicted womanhood: people who identify as women, different women, beautiful women no matter what.

    There was
