Description

Recommended for 7th & up.

Born in Mexico City in 1942, Graciela Iturbide wants to be a writer, but her conservative family has a different idea. Although she initially follows their wishes, she soon grows restless. When tragedy strikes, she turns to photography to better understand the world. The photographic journey she embarks on takes her throughout Mexico and around the globe, introducing her to fascinating people and cultures, and eventually bringing her success and fame. With more than two dozen photographs by Iturbide herselff, Photographic explores the question of what it means to become an artist.

NONFICTION AWARD WINNER:

Photographic: The Life of Graciela Iturbide by Isabel Quintero, illustrated by Zeke Peña (Getty)

 

"This inventive and inspiring illustrated story of an iconic Mexican photographer contains biographical graphic novel formats, her photos, and narrations for a compilation that documents Iturbide’s journeys and takes the reader on one of their own."
Danielle Davis, writesinla blog 
 
"Teens will come away with an evolved sense of how to look at a creator’s life and work and how to think critically about art as a process. The importance of being seen, specifically in regard to indigenous communities in Mexico and Mexican Americans in the United States, as a narrative thread will resonate strongly with readers. VERDICT Quintero and Peña have set a new standard in artist biographies. A must for teen collections."
–Della Farrell, School Library Journal
