Photographic: The Life of Graciela Iturbide

Graciela Iturbide was born in Mxico City in 1942, the oldest of 13 children. When tragedy struck Iturbide as a young mother, she turned to photography for solace and understanding. From then on Iturbide embarked on a photographic journey that has taken her throughout her native Mxico, from the Sonora Desert to Juchitn to Frida Kahlos bathroom, to the United States, India, and beyond.

Photographic: The Life of Graciela Iturbide Reviews

    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.

  • 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

    This is a biography of Graciela Iturbide which was beautifully told in graphic novel form. The gorgeous illustrations drew me in, and the story kept me interested. I loved that this book included a few snip-its of the Iturbides work, and the story behind some of her most famous photos. I will definitely be suggesting this to all my non-fiction graphic novel loving friends, as well as asking my local library to consider picking up a copy or three for our community to enjoy as well.

    It is very interesting to read a graphic novel about a photographer when most of the illustrations are drawings! A few photos were interspersed through the book, but it left me wanting more! So, next I want to find a book of her photographs.

    The story of Iturbide's life felt somber, yet also beautiful. I love finding good books about people that I hadn't heard about until now.

    I was provided an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    I didn’t know this photograph before but I was happy to get to know her through this very interesting comic book.

    I really liked this format for biographies, it really helped me focus on it, while I fall asleep reading usual biographies……

  • Molly

    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

    Not being familiar with Iturbide's work -- something I plan on doing after reading this -- I only wish there'd been more of her photographs included along with the art. An interesting look at the life of an upperclass Mexican photographer who chose to pursue her passion, even though it wasn't seen as appropriate for someone of her status.

    Quintero's narrative and Pena's art work well together. Iturbide said she doesn't like her work being called magical, but rather a shifting narrative and road

    "Graciela gave up a life of comfort and convention—choosing instead the path of the artist and risking everything."

    "This is how I find my selves. But choosing who I will be."
