Desires and Disguises: Five Latin American Photographers
Serpent's Tail, 1992 - Biography & Autobiography - 80 pages
In marking five hundred years of European presence in Latin America, photographers look at their own countries, each through the life of a specific community there. Sandra Eleta focuses on the Panamanian fishing port of Portobelo, founded as a free republic two centuries ago by runaway slaves. Paz Errazuriz seeks out the ?marginalized? of her native Chile - transvestites, prostitutes, gypsies, the poor - while Maria Cristina Orive explores the mix of indigenous rituals with those of the Catholic Church in the Holy Week processions of Guatemala. The chosen subjects of Sara Facio are the inhabitants of her native Buenos Aires; whereas for Graciela Iturbide they are Mexican street gangs of Los Angeles and Tijuana.
