    An interesting and thought-provoking book. Graciela Iturbide was an artist first but was born into a society where women confirmed. Getting married and raising a family didn't complete her and finally she enrolled into film school, later to become an apprentice photographer. She has...

    I found it interesting to see how this woman, Graciela Iturbide, saw the world as a writer, a photographer, an artist. How she understood it through her lens. What I loved the most was how she travelled all around the word and tried to capture things that weren?t usual, things that ...

    I loved it. This is a book written by a poet and an artist, and because of that both language and image intertwine in the most beautiful way. Isabel Quintero and Zeke Peña, use their particular languages to tell us the story of Graciela Iturbide; furthermore, they also bring to us th...

    "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...

    Interesting introduction to Mexican photographer Graciela Iturbide. I liked the use of comic line drawings+photographs to give us a small taste of both the woman and her work. The few of Graciela Iturbide's photographs that are featured in this book are haunting. ...

    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...

    An exemplary biography of Graceila Itrubide, a Mexican photographer and artist. Her work spans decades and themes, and this book traces her background, her training, and her inspirations. Some of her best known work is of the intersection between humans and nature, in her native Mexico...

    "Graciela gave up a life of comfort and convention?choosing instead the path of the artist and risking everything." "This is how I find my selves. But choosing who I will be." ...

    Not being familiar with Iturbide's work -- something I plan on doing after reading this -- I only wish there'd been more of her photographs included along with the art. An interesting look at the life of an upperclass Mexican photographer who chose to pursue her passion, even though it...

    Absolutely gorgeous and absolutely unforgettable. ...

    One of the best graphic novels of 2018, the gorgeous exposition on Photographer Graciela Iturbide is not simply an autobiography about her, it dives into the how and why of her life, artistic and philosophical choices. Author Isabel Quintero uses very few words to tell the story but...

    The art of this graphic novel is beautiful, but it barely compares to the photographs taken by Graciela Iturbide. I was astonished that I'd never heard of this amazing photographer and incredibly glad that the authors of this volume provided a list of references for exploring her work....

    I adored this short graphic biography about the life of Mexican photographer Graciela Iturbide. The Getty Museum has done an outstanding job of pulling together an award winning writer and graphic artist to bring this story to print. The book includes 25 of Iturbide's mythical photogra...

    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 Ri...

    I did not think I knew anything about this person, Graciela Iturbide, but while reading I realized had seen some of the photographs?and remembered them. This is just the beginning of why I think you should immediately get off your duff and go seek out Photographic, which is a visuall...

    I was provided an eARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Before requesting this book I didn't know anything about Graciela Iturbide and if it wasn't for the camera on the cover I wouldn't even know she is a photographer. I know little to nothing about photography and I...

    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 add...

    I loved reading this. The way Graciela was written is beautiful & intriguing. I studied photography & she was not brought to my attention before(one of her images is familiar), now I am going to find some if her collections to explore! ...

    Amazing graphic novel that describes the development of a artistic/photographic eye. Includes several photographs by Graciela Iturbide as well as drawings of the events and locations she photographs. She takes exclusively b/w photos with film and prints them. The line drawings capture ...

    A poem composed of biography, drawings, photographs, and meditations on art, this is a book I want to share and discuss, reflect on and reread. I never even heard if the subject, Graciela Iturbide, before I picked it up (one of many holes in my education), and now I feel somehow relate...

    I love how her photographs were depicted throughout this graphic novel. I am curious to see how the young people in my life react to the way her story is told. ...

    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. ...

    4.5 stars, maybe a hair pretentious, but in a way appropriate for young adults. The biographic approach here is somewhat akin to that of Are You an Echo? and is similarly effective. I hope awards committees are taking a hard look at this. ...

    What a beautiful biography in comic/photo/poetry form. The pacing is stellar, flows like a long poem and drags you from moment to moment. Great art, solid mix of semi-realistic inks that flow naturally into the actual photographs. The perfect start to get to know her work and her influ...

    "We are all fragments of one another, strewn across Mexico and across borders. Different lines in the same poem." I'm so glad I picked this book off the display as I passed by. The images are gorgeous and the way the artist's life is told is poetic. I now have a favorite new artist. ...

    An exemplary biography of Graceila Itrubide, a Mexican photographer and artist. Her work spans decades and themes, and this book traces her background, her training, and her inspirations. Some of her best known work is of the intersection between humans and nature, in her native Mexico...

    I found it interesting to see how this woman, Graciela Iturbide, saw the world as a writer, a photographer, an artist. How she understood it through her lens. What I loved the most was how she travelled all around the word and tried to capture things that weren?t usual, things that ...

    I loved it. This is a book written by a poet and an artist, and because of that both language and image intertwine in the most beautiful way. Isabel Quintero and Zeke Peña, use their particular languages to tell us the story of Graciela Iturbide; furthermore, they also bring to us th...

    Amazing graphic novel that describes the development of a artistic/photographic eye. Includes several photographs by Graciela Iturbide as well as drawings of the events and locations she photographs. She takes exclusively b/w photos with film and prints them. The line drawings capture ...

    A poem composed of biography, drawings, photographs, and meditations on art, this is a book I want to share and discuss, reflect on and reread. I never even heard if the subject, Graciela Iturbide, before I picked it up (one of many holes in my education), and now I feel somehow relate...

    I love how her photographs were depicted throughout this graphic novel. I am curious to see how the young people in my life react to the way her story is told. ...

    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. ...

    4.5 stars, maybe a hair pretentious, but in a way appropriate for young adults. The biographic approach here is somewhat akin to that of Are You an Echo? and is similarly effective. I hope awards committees are taking a hard look at this. ...

    What a beautiful biography in comic/photo/poetry form. The pacing is stellar, flows like a long poem and drags you from moment to moment. Great art, solid mix of semi-realistic inks that flow naturally into the actual photographs. The perfect start to get to know her work and her influ...

    When I established a shelf for graphic content, I didn't imagine that I'd be reviewing graphic non-fiction. So I called that shelf graphic novels. Today I changed it to include this book. Then I found Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood, which I'd read but never reviewed, and added it...

    ?We are all fragments of one another, strewn across.... borders. Different lines in the same poem.? ?Photography reveals flocks of birds with unclipped wings moving inside me. . . .I am a woman and then a bird.? ?Bird is dream is camera is self is life.? I am glad...

    An interesting and thought-provoking book. Graciela Iturbide was an artist first but was born into a society where women confirmed. Getting married and raising a family didn't complete her and finally she enrolled into film school, later to become an apprentice photographer. She has...

    I found it interesting to see how this woman, Graciela Iturbide, saw the world as a writer, a photographer, an artist. How she understood it through her lens. What I loved the most was how she travelled all around the word and tried to capture things that weren?t usual, things that ...

    I loved it. This is a book written by a poet and an artist, and because of that both language and image intertwine in the most beautiful way. Isabel Quintero and Zeke Peña, use their particular languages to tell us the story of Graciela Iturbide; furthermore, they also bring to us th...

    "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...

    Interesting introduction to Mexican photographer Graciela Iturbide. I liked the use of comic line drawings+photographs to give us a small taste of both the woman and her work. The few of Graciela Iturbide's photographs that are featured in this book are haunting. ...

    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...

    An exemplary biography of Graceila Itrubide, a Mexican photographer and artist. Her work spans decades and themes, and this book traces her background, her training, and her inspirations. Some of her best known work is of the intersection between humans and nature, in her native Mexico...

    "Graciela gave up a life of comfort and convention?choosing instead the path of the artist and risking everything." "This is how I find my selves. But choosing who I will be." ...

    Not being familiar with Iturbide's work -- something I plan on doing after reading this -- I only wish there'd been more of her photographs included along with the art. An interesting look at the life of an upperclass Mexican photographer who chose to pursue her passion, even though it...

    Absolutely gorgeous and absolutely unforgettable. ...

    One of the best graphic novels of 2018, the gorgeous exposition on Photographer Graciela Iturbide is not simply an autobiography about her, it dives into the how and why of her life, artistic and philosophical choices. Author Isabel Quintero uses very few words to tell the story but...

    The art of this graphic novel is beautiful, but it barely compares to the photographs taken by Graciela Iturbide. I was astonished that I'd never heard of this amazing photographer and incredibly glad that the authors of this volume provided a list of references for exploring her work....

    I adored this short graphic biography about the life of Mexican photographer Graciela Iturbide. The Getty Museum has done an outstanding job of pulling together an award winning writer and graphic artist to bring this story to print. The book includes 25 of Iturbide's mythical photogra...

    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 Ri...

    I did not think I knew anything about this person, Graciela Iturbide, but while reading I realized had seen some of the photographs?and remembered them. This is just the beginning of why I think you should immediately get off your duff and go seek out Photographic, which is a visuall...

    I was provided an eARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Before requesting this book I didn't know anything about Graciela Iturbide and if it wasn't for the camera on the cover I wouldn't even know she is a photographer. I know little to nothing about photography and I...

    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 add...

    I loved reading this. The way Graciela was written is beautiful & intriguing. I studied photography & she was not brought to my attention before(one of her images is familiar), now I am going to find some if her collections to explore! ...

    Amazing graphic novel that describes the development of a artistic/photographic eye. Includes several photographs by Graciela Iturbide as well as drawings of the events and locations she photographs. She takes exclusively b/w photos with film and prints them. The line drawings capture ...

    A poem composed of biography, drawings, photographs, and meditations on art, this is a book I want to share and discuss, reflect on and reread. I never even heard if the subject, Graciela Iturbide, before I picked it up (one of many holes in my education), and now I feel somehow relate...

    I love how her photographs were depicted throughout this graphic novel. I am curious to see how the young people in my life react to the way her story is told. ...

    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. ...

    4.5 stars, maybe a hair pretentious, but in a way appropriate for young adults. The biographic approach here is somewhat akin to that of Are You an Echo? and is similarly effective. I hope awards committees are taking a hard look at this. ...

    Not being familiar with Iturbide's work -- something I plan on doing after reading this -- I only wish there'd been more of her photographs included along with the art. An interesting look at the life of an upperclass Mexican photographer who chose to pursue her passion, even though it...

    Absolutely gorgeous and absolutely unforgettable. ...

    One of the best graphic novels of 2018, the gorgeous exposition on Photographer Graciela Iturbide is not simply an autobiography about her, it dives into the how and why of her life, artistic and philosophical choices. Author Isabel Quintero uses very few words to tell the story but...

    The art of this graphic novel is beautiful, but it barely compares to the photographs taken by Graciela Iturbide. I was astonished that I'd never heard of this amazing photographer and incredibly glad that the authors of this volume provided a list of references for exploring her work....

    I adored this short graphic biography about the life of Mexican photographer Graciela Iturbide. The Getty Museum has done an outstanding job of pulling together an award winning writer and graphic artist to bring this story to print. The book includes 25 of Iturbide's mythical photogra...

    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 Ri...

    I did not think I knew anything about this person, Graciela Iturbide, but while reading I realized had seen some of the photographs?and remembered them. This is just the beginning of why I think you should immediately get off your duff and go seek out Photographic, which is a visuall...

    I was provided an eARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Before requesting this book I didn't know anything about Graciela Iturbide and if it wasn't for the camera on the cover I wouldn't even know she is a photographer. I know little to nothing about photography and I...

    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 add...

    I loved reading this. The way Graciela was written is beautiful & intriguing. I studied photography & she was not brought to my attention before(one of her images is familiar), now I am going to find some if her collections to explore! ...

    Amazing graphic novel that describes the development of a artistic/photographic eye. Includes several photographs by Graciela Iturbide as well as drawings of the events and locations she photographs. She takes exclusively b/w photos with film and prints them. The line drawings capture ...

    An interesting and thought-provoking book. Graciela Iturbide was an artist first but was born into a society where women confirmed. Getting married and raising a family didn't complete her and finally she enrolled into film school, later to become an apprentice photographer. She has...

    I found it interesting to see how this woman, Graciela Iturbide, saw the world as a writer, a photographer, an artist. How she understood it through her lens. What I loved the most was how she travelled all around the word and tried to capture things that weren?t usual, things that ...

    I loved it. This is a book written by a poet and an artist, and because of that both language and image intertwine in the most beautiful way. Isabel Quintero and Zeke Peña, use their particular languages to tell us the story of Graciela Iturbide; furthermore, they also bring to us th...

    Interesting introduction to Mexican photographer Graciela Iturbide. I liked the use of comic line drawings+photographs to give us a small taste of both the woman and her work. The few of Graciela Iturbide's photographs that are featured in this book are haunting. ...

    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...
