Summary

A growing appreciation of the photobook has inspired a flood of new scholarship and connoisseurship of the formfew as surprising and inspiring as The Latin American Photobook, the culmination of a four-year, cross-continental research effort led by Horacio Fernández, author of the seminal volume, Fotografia Pública. Compiled with the input of a committee of researchers, scholars, and photographers, including Marcelo Brodsky, Iatã Cannabrava, Pablo Ortiz Monasterio, and Martin Parr, The Latin American Photobook presents one hundred and fifty volumes from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, and Venezuela. The Latin American Photobook begins with the 1920s and continues up to today, providing revelatory perspectives on the undercharted history of Latin American photography, and featuring work by great figures such as Claudia Andujar, Barbara Brändli, Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Horacio Coppola, Paz Errázuriz, Graciela Iturbide, Sara Facio, Paolo Gasparini, Daniel González, 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, a category uniquely important to Latin America. Fernandezs texts, exhaustively researched and richly illustrated, offer insights 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.
