Due date: December 2016. Publisher's description: Dolores "Lola" Martinez de Anda (1903-93) became a photographer after her marriage to Manuel Alvarez Bravo in 1925. From the 1930s through the 1960s, Lola -- as she was always known -- was the leading female photographer in Mexico. Her diverse output includes portraits of the day's leading artists and intellectuals, documents of post-Revolutionary social reforms and images of life on the streets of cities and villages from Acapulco to Veracruz. This elegant and beautifully designed spiralbound volume presents 50 of the artist's most famous and endearing photographs, drawn from an archive of more than 200 gelatin silver prints in the collection of the Fundacion Cultural Televisa in Mexico City. Inspired by midcentury photobooks and magazines, as well as the materials in the artist's own archive, 50 Photographs features a tipped-in sleeve with fictitious contact sheets, a checklist and an essay by art historian and curator James Oles on photographic prints and archives, in which he recounts the story behind this publication.
