"Born in Mexico City in 1942, Graciela Iturbide wants to be a writer, but her conservative family has a different idea. Although she initially follows their wishes, she soon grows restless. After tragedy strikes, she turns to photography to better understand the world. The photographic journey she embarks on takes her throughout Mexico and around the globe, introducing her to fascinating people and cultures, and eventually bringing her success and fame. With more than two dozen photographs by Iturbide herselft, Photographic explores the questions of what it means to become an artist."--Back cover.

This is a beautiful, unconventional book about photographer Graciela Iturbide. The writing by Isabel Quintero is simple, as are the beautiful drawings by Zeke Peña.

While I loved the illustrations, and the way Iturbide's photographs were both drawn and embedded, only the most serious of high school students will enjoy the text. One comes away from the book knowing very little about the artist's life, but a great deal about how her work has been interpreted. This book will find favor among students of art and photography at the college level and beyond. (Note: IndyPL call number places this book in the Teen collection - worth the trek if you're not a teen!)

Good visuals. Samples from the subject's life. I was underwhelmed overall.
