From the Publisher:
Draws from about 1,000 images exhibited by FotoFest 1992 to offer a diverse selection of photographers, countries, artistic movements, and subject matter rich in both history and creativity. The color and duotone photographs (many of which appear in print for the first time) range from the opening of the Brazilian frontier in the 1880s to documentary images from El Salvador's 1980 civil war to works of specifically aesthetic and experimental intent. The text (written in both Spanish and English) provides a curatorial overview followed by essays on the roots of visual imagery in Latin American cultures, the history of Latin American photography in the 19th century, the contemporary scene, and the debate over "artistic" versus documentary work. Includes an extensive bibliography and artist biographies. Oversize: 10.50x11". Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
