Graciela Iturbide (b. 1942), a winner of the 2008 Hasselblad Foundation Award and acclaimed as one of Latin America’s greatest photographers, presents in Mi ojo a personal selection, described as “mysterious,” of her black-and-white images.
Photography is taken here to an extreme, through the use of silver ink on black cardboard for the printing. This gives the images the look of negatives, while at the same time underlining the intrinsic strangeness of the photographs.
The book has been published in a small, intimate format, in accordance with the highest standards of design and impression. It is a limited-edition curiosity aimed at connoisseurs of Iturbide’s work and of contemporary photography books. Also, at Graciela Iturbide’s own request, it contains a replica of her “eye.”
