TINA MODOTTI: PHOTOGRAPHS. Sarah M. Lowe. Philadelphia Museum of Art, 1995. Published in association with Harry N. Abrams, Inc., New York. 160 pp. with 148 ills. 30 x 23 cm. LC 95-889 ISBN 0810942801 In English.
The first substantial study of the artistic achievements of an Italian-born photographer best known for her association with Edward Weston and her role as a political activist in Mexico during the 1920s, this catalogue presents reproductions of nearly 130 photographs produced by Modotti (1896-1942) from 1923 to 1930, including modernist-influenced still lifes, architectural studies and portraits as well as many images of Mexican peasants and laborers. Focusing on the interplay of Modotti's artistic and political ideals, a lengthy essay provides a detailed chronicle of the photographer's career from her early work as an actress in California through her involvement with the Mexican Communist Party and her years of exile in Russia and Western Europe in the 1930s.
