The writing is very pedantic which is why it seems to have started out a a thesis and then the author decided to make it into a book. No one interested in Mexico's history or of photographers of the country will get anything from this book.

Near the end of Seeing Mexico Photographed, Leonard Folgarait names the subject of inquiry that unfurls in his meticulously elaborated study of post-revolutionary Mexico: photographic thinking (180). Chapter 1 examines photojournalists Walter H. Horne and Agustín Víctor Casasola, briefly setting the stage for the discussion of post-revolutionary Mexico with images of the armed conflict that would shape all other political conflicts in the country during the twentieth century and into the twenty first.

Studies participating in the recent turn to ethics in the . academy often draw a lineage to the modernist avant-gardes of the first decades of the twentieth century; literary and art historical scholars have taken them up as powerful inspirations in the quest for ethically engaged criticism and cultural production View.

This engrossing book presents the photographs of four historically engaged artists and explains what they reveal about the highly dramatic revolutionary and post-revolutionary period in Mexico from 1910 to 1935. The works of these photographers—American Walter H. Horne, Italian Tina Modotti, and Mexicans Agustín VíctorCasasola  and Manuel Álvarez Bravo—are discussed not just as windows onto events but as artworks that offer both objective reporting and stylized expression.

 

The twenty-five years covered in the book encompass some of the most convulsive developments in Mexico, from the violence and cataclysmic changes wrought by the Mexican Revolution to the immense struggles to forge a new nation and a new government. During this period, the work of the four photographers—two primarily documentary,  one propagandistic, and one artistic and personal—enabled Mexicans to understand the forces that had brought their nation to armed conflict and social transformation.

I haven't read the book but I was dissappointed when there weren't that many photographs, probably 20 at the most.

Beautiful and informative book; a must buy and read if you are into Mexican topics, photography, or are a fan of any of the photographers dealt with in this book.

The title is very misleading. The book reads like a thesis paper that was written by a non-photographer. The 130 pages on Tina Modotti had only 15 pictures, and this included a formal head shot, a picture of part of a typewritter keyboard, two snapshots of the photographer, and five very contrived pictures with a sombrero and a bullet belt and a hammer and sickle, three snapshots of people reading a newspaper, a closeup of a rose and another of some glasses, three pictures looking down on people in the street, and a picture by Edward Weston. To look at Modotti's pictures that are presented one would assume she was of no consequence as a photographer of her time.

The other individual covered is Manual Alvarez Bravo. The few sample pictures show a mediocre photographer who like Modotti was not comfortable his subjects looking toward the photographer so the images have a very industrial look like someone illustrating a factory safety manual.
The writing is very pedantic which is why it seems to have started out a a thesis and then the author decided to make it into a book. No one interested in Mexico's history or of photographers of the country will get anything from this book.
