The Latin American Photobook

A growing appreciation of the photobook has inspired a flood of new scholarship and connoisseurship of the form–few as surprising and inspiring as The Latin American Photobook, the culmination of a four-year, cross-continental research effort led by Horacio Fernandez, author of the seminal volume Fotografia P blica. Compiled with the input of a committee of researchers, scholars, and photographers, including Marcelo Brodsky, Iat Cannabrava, Pablo Ortiz Monasterio and Martin Parr, The Latin American Photobookpresents 150 volumes from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru and Venezuela. It begins with the 1920s and continues up to today, providing revelatory perspectives on the under-charted history of Latin American photography, and featuring work by great figures such as Claudia Andujar, Barbara Br ndli, Manuel lvarez Bravo, Horacio Coppola, Paz Err zuriz, Graciela Iturbide, Sara Facio, Paolo Gasparini, Daniel Gonz lez, Boris Kossoy, Sergio Larrain and many others. The book is divided into thematic sections such as “The City,” “Conceptual Art and Photography” and “Photography and Literature,” the latter a category uniquely important to Latin America. Fernandez’s texts, exhaustively researched and richly illustrated, offer insight not only on each individual title and photographer, but on the multivalent social, political, and artistic histories of the region as well. This book is an unparalleled resource for those interested in Latin American photography or in discovering these heretofore unknown gems in the history of the photobook at large.
