Go To Product Details
Hardcover. 356 pages.
Exquisitely printed volume of the complete photographic works made by Strand during his 1932–34 trip to Mexico, as well as a second journey in 1966—a total of 234 photographs, 123 never before published.

The first publication to chronicle this pivotal time in Strand's career, it was published to coincide with the centennial of Mexican independence in 2010 and chronicles Strand's foundational idea of the "collective portrait," depicting a region through photographs of individuals, still lifes, and studies of architecture and religious subjects.

In-depth, scholarly texts by author James Krippner, Mexican photo-historian Alfonso Morales, Katherine Ware, Leo Hurwitz, David Alfaro Siqueros, and Anthony Montoya help contextualize this remarkable body of work. Also included in this essential volume is a restored DVD version of the groundbreaking film, Redes (The Waves, 1936), on which Strand collaborated with Emilio Gomez Muriel and Academy Award-winning director Fred Zinnemann.
