Photographic: The Life of Graciela Iturbide Reviews

  • Laura

    Not a photographer I was familiar with. This a stunningly creative depiction of her evolution as an artist, a mix of story, poetry, photos, and graphic novel.

  • Goreting

    Photographic is a biography of Graciela Iturbide told in graphic form.

    I found it to be a very enjoyable read and, even though I was surprised to see that the inside content of the book was black and white, I feel that it was a good creative choice, given that Iturbide always shot in black and white.

    I admit I had never heard of her before reading this, but I'm glad I did, as it gave me a very interesting perspective on her creative process and the way she saw life in general.

    I was excited to learn that Isabel Quintero wrote a new YA book because my students had enjoyed Gabi: A Girl in Pieces so much. (I only use the past tense because I retired; they are most likely still enjoying it.) However, it wasn’t until I went to a reading event last weekend in Riverside, where Quintero was one of the authors, that I realized the new book is not a novel, but graphic nonfiction.

    I received a digital copy to read and review from NetGalley

    Clearly based on the cover, this book is full of gorgeous art.

    However, this book is in black and white, because that is what photographer Graciela Iturbide believes reality is - black and white.

    This is around 90 or so pages of a very brief history of the rise and work of Graciela Iturbide. The pages are a mix of simplistic comics composed of interviews done with Graciela, as well as a few of her actual photographs.

    There is additional

  • 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

  • Anita

    This is an exquisite work, encompassed in less than 100 pages and chronicling snapshots of the life of Mexican photographer Graciela Iturbide. In deference to the black and white photography that is the signature of Señora Iturbide, this biography is illustrated in grayscale.

    For me, this book is mesmerizing in the succinct narrative that accompanies the graphics, which simultaneously invites introspection while delivering metaphysical treasures. It is as though the reader is both the template a

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

    I didn’t know this photograph before but I was happy to get to know her through this very interesting comic book.

    I really liked this format for biographies, it really helped me focus on it, while I fall asleep reading usual biographies……
