Summary
"This book presents the photographs of four historically engaged artists and explains what they reveal about the highly dramatic revolutionary and post-revolutionary period in Mexico from 1910 to 1935. The works of these photographers - American Walter H. Horne, Italian Tina Modotti, and Mexicans Agustin Victor Casasola and Manuel Alvarez Bravo - are discussed not just as windows onto events but as artworks that offer both objective reporting and stylized expression."--BOOK JACKET
