Tina Modotti

Phaidon

UK 2005

An accessible, collectable book on Tina Modotti. Italian photographer Modotti (1896-1942) was a pioneer among the few women photographers of the 1920s. Having studied with Edward Weston, she soon became an outstanding photographer in her own right. Documenting the people and tumultuous politics of Mexico, her portraits, still lifes and abstract compositions combine a sophisticated sense of design with socially and politically orientated subject matter. Linked to some of the most important artistic and political developments of the twentieth century she was a significant influence on future Mexican photographers, including Manuel Alvarez Bravo and Graciela Iturbide.
