Book Description 
  
"This book will become the most complete and useful English-language text on its subject, and will be the essential starting point for anyone wishing to incorporate Mexican material into a photographic survey course, to add photography to a course on Mexican culture, or to do more research in the field." -Martha A. Sandweiss, Associate Professor of American Studies and History, Amherst College The history of photography in Mexico was a largely untold story until the 1994 publication of Olivier Debroise's Fuga Mexicana, un recorrido por la fotograffa en MTxico. Based on ten years' research in public and private photographic archives in Mexico, the United States, Guatemala, and Europe, Fuga Mexicana provided the first comprehensive survey of Mexican photography from the advent of the daguerreotype in 1839 to the present. Now this benchmark publication is available in English as Mexican Suite. Olivier Debroise and Stella de S Rego have revised this edition to include more current material and explanatory notes for an audience less familiar with Mexican history. They have also eliminated some of the general history of photography and added more of the early history of photography in Mexico, as well as many new, previously unpublished images. The book is organized both chronologically and thematically, which allows viewer/readers to follow the evolution of major photographic genres and styles. Debroise also examines the role of photography in the development of modern Mexico and the influence of prominent foreign photographers such as Edward Weston, Tina Modotti, and Henri Cartier-Bress
