    "This book represents a sample of Graciela Iturbide's photographic work, a lifetime achievement marked by an exploration of universal themes such as life and death. Her depictions of rituals and ceremonies from everyday life reflect her social concern. She investigates the tension between nature and culture, tradition and modernity, identity and representation, capturing important events in life, rather than decisive moments in time. Graciela Iturbide is one of our time's most prominent and most important Latin American photographers. She has developed her own photographic language out of her strong roots in Mexican culture, and out of influences from surrealism and its links with religion and mysticism. She takes up the most varied subject areas in totally different cultures and milieus. Her photographs, nevertheless, always bear clear traces of her own presence. There is a sense of recognition, no matter whether the pictures have been taken in her native Mexico, in India, Italy or the USA…" Gunilla Knape.
