Photographic: The Life of Graciela Iturbide Reviews

  • Shreya

    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

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

    Before requesting this book I didn't know anything about Graciela Iturbide and if it wasn't for the camera on the cover I wouldn't even know she is a photographer. I know little to nothing about photography and I was never interested in learning more. I don't know what pulled me to request this biography because I usually don't read non-fiction and if I read it, it's about someone I'm really interested in. I think it was becau

    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!

  • Victoria Peipert

    I loved the mixed method used in this book. The poetic first person narrative mixed with illustrations and the photographers real pictures made this a really unique and enjoyable book to read. I really enjoyed the style and learning more about Graciela Iturbide as well - I will be definitely looking into more of her work as well now!

  • David

    Quintero and Peña’s artfully crafted graphic biography of Graciela Iturbide glides readers back and forth through Iturbide’s life, circling and briefly roosting in the locations where Iturbide graciously engages others through her camera. Quintero guides readers through direct address. Her poetic prose brings into focus the life of one of Mexico’s preeminent photographers with precise diction and powerful imagery. As if in conversation with Quintero, Iturbide narrates her own story in prose unhi ...more

    "I choose photography over tradition."


    Photographic is a graphic novel following the life of Mexican photographer Graciela Iturbide, someone that I, unfortunately, didn't know about until reading this. Actually, that is precisely why I picked this up. A successful, female, Mexican photographer? Of course I had to check it out!

    Before saying anything else, I need to mention that I am Mexican. Born and raised. Reading about Graciela Iturbide and what she has been doing way before I was alive, was ...more

  • Sylvia

    I loved it. This is a book written by a poet and an artist, and because of that both language and image intertwine in the most beautiful way. Isabel Quintero and Zeke Peña, use their particular languages to tell us the story of Graciela Iturbide; furthermore, they also bring to us the importance of looking at people, objects, places with different eyes. Always.

    This is not a common biography or a common graphic novel; this is an attempt to bring together the magic of Iturbides life and work to t

    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
