Graciela Iturbide was born in Mexico city in 1942. She wanted to be a writer, but her conservative family had different plans for her. At first she accepted her destiny, but she felt increasingly uncomfortable in it. When tragedy struck, she turned to photography in order to better understand the world. The photographic journey she started would take her all throughout Mexico and around the globe, allowing her to discover fascinating folks and cultures and, in time, it would earn her fame and success. Iguana Lady, which features over two dozen photographs by Graciela Iturbide, explores what it means to be an artist.
Isabel Quintero’s poetic writing and Zeke Peña’s luminous illustrations in this impressive biography guide readers throughout an absorbing and revealing journey. A graphic work with an identity of its own, which is a worthy homage to an important and influential photographer. –Liliam Rivera
This extraordinary biography reflects the poetry inside Graciela Iturbide’s photographs. Isabel Quintero’s words and Zeke Peña’s drawings create a brilliant conjunction which shapes a graphic novel that evokes the process and meaning of creation. Highly appealing. –Cathy Camper
