Graciela Iturbide on Dreams, Symbols, and Imagination
In this volume of The Photography Workshop Series, Graciela Iturbide—known for her portraits and landscapes imbued with poetic ambiguity and documentary truth—explores photographing in ways that employ a deeply personal vision, while also reflecting subjects’ rich cultural backgrounds.
Aperture works with the world’s top photographers to distill their creative approaches, teachings, and insights on photography—offering the workshop experience in a book. Our goal is to inspire photographers of all levels who wish to improve their work, as well as readers interested in deepening their understanding of the art of photography. Through images and words, Iturbide shares her creative process and artistic inspirations, and discusses a wide range of issues, from the importance of surprise and recognizing what speaks to you, to capturing symbolism and meaning in the everyday.
