Photographic: The Life of Graciela Iturbide: Talk & Book Signing with Isabel Quintero

Wednesday, 17 April 2019

Presented by Red Salmon Arts

A 2018 Boston Globe Horn Book Nonfiction Award Winner and a 2018 Moonbeam Children’s Books Gold Award Winner!

Graciela Iturbide was born in Mexico City in 1942, the oldest of 13 children. When tragedy struck Iturbide as a young mother, she turned to photography for solace and understanding. From then on Iturbide embarked on a photographic journey that has taken her throughout her native Mexico, from the Sonora Desert to Juchitán to Frida Kahlo’s bathroom, to the United States, India, and beyond. Photographic is a symbolic, poetic, and deeply personal graphic biography of this iconic photographer. Iturbide’s journey will excite readers of all ages as well as budding photographers, who will be inspired by her resolve, talent, and curiosity.
