Sensual female nudes and exquisite still lifes form this collection of symbolic work by acclaimed Mexican photographer Flor Garduno. In contrast to her first three books, which were essentially diaries of her travels through the Americas, Flor Garduno: Inner Light is a diary of her personal, interior landscape. The images - still lifes, nudes, and portraits of her daughter Azul - were taken in and around her homes in Mexico and Switzerland. Using the quiet elegance of natural light, she has created a stunning series of photographs that, reproduced here in tritone, bring a magical lyricism to black-and-white photography.

About the Author:

Flor Garduno was born in Mexico City in 1957. She began her career as an assistant to Manuel Alvarez Bravo and now her work is in the collections of public institutions, such as the Museum of Modern Art, New York

From Publishers Weekly:

In her follow up to the travel diary Witnesses of Time, Mexican photographer Garduño veers away from architecture and landscape to explore the female nude and the still life. The one-time assistant to Mañuel Alvarez Bravo does not, however, forsake her signature magic realism in this new terrain. Echoing Bravo and Tina Modotti, Garduño evokes ancient myths and indigenous rituals with a surrealist touch. She celebrates all her subjects-monumental leaves, rough-hewn stone, gleaming crows, dead fish, sphinx-like children, and supple pomegranates-with the sensuous play of light and shadow, but it is the female body, -its planes and curves, that Garduño consecrates with sumptuous luminosity. Although not a groundbreaking collection, the series affirms the artist's contribution to the wide scope of Latin American photography. An uneven introduction by poet Verónica Volkow probes themes of fertility and death; Garduño's enigmatic images speak eloquently of such mysteries all by themselves. 62 tritone photos.
