    Bird is dream is camera is self is life. Graciela Iturbide is a Mexican woman who, at first, followed the path that is already set for her: believe in God, marry, have children, keep a home. Until after the death of her daughter that she finally decided to create her own path throug...

    I loved learning about Graciela Iturbide. She's a photographer I had, unfortunately, not heard of before now. I loved that the storytelling mixed beautiful line art with actual photography. I really love birds and photographs of birds so this book inspired me to look up Iturbide's work...

    I loved the mixed method used in this book. The poetic first person narrative mixed with illustrations and the photographers real pictures made this a really unique and enjoyable book to read. I really enjoyed the style and learning more about Graciela Iturbide as well - I will be defi...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    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." ...

    Absolutely gorgeous and absolutely unforgettable. ...

    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...

    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 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...

    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....

    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 ...

    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. ...

    I was provided an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I didn?t know this photograph before but I was happy to get to know her through this very interesting comic book. I really liked this format for biographies, it really helped me focus on it, while I fall asle...

    A graphic novel biography of an innovative photographer best known for her photos of Mexican communities. The text in this reads like poetry. It?s a lyrical explanation for how Iturbide sees the world and what motivates her. It?s a poetic explanation of the various cultures and ...

    Thank you to Harry N. Abrams and Netgalley for providing me with a review copy. I will admit, I don't usually like reading biographies. However, I will happily devour graphic novels, and this one sits at the intersection of those two genres. Photographic explored the life of Graciel...

    How have I made it through fifty-five years of life and never discovered the mind blowing photographic work of artist Graciela Iturbide? She is at least an equal to more well known photographers, such as Cartier-Bresson or Brassai, with whom she shares a seemingly supernatural abili...

    This is a beautiful biography of Mexican photographer Gabriela Iturbide. The artwork is evocative and interspersed with some surreal photographs like the lady with a headgear of multiple iguanas. It also covers her journeys in Mexico (Oaxaca, Sonora, Juchitan) as well as India. I only ...
