"This is a very important and exciting book, one whose illustrations alone deserve to be seen. Bringing them together with these essays is a publication that is long overdue, one that will finally be available to North American audiences for both the generalist and the specialist, the artist and the writer." -- Michele M. Penhall, specialist in the history of Latin American photography
