From Library Journal:

Those who regard photographic imagery as a precise representation of the physical world will find this companion to a touring exhibition unsettling. Internationally acclaimed Mexican photographer Meyer traveled across the United States capturing visual images of solitude, materialism, and sociopolitical conflicts and across Mexico documenting the spirituality inherent in peasant life, folk customs, and religious artifacts. Here he shows how his original photos were "manipulated" by computer technology to achieve his perceptions of reality. Digital capability enables him to place a person from one picture into the landscape of another; to enlarge, diminish, eliminate, highlight, or suspend in space people or objects; and to alter light and shadow. The 115 color and black-and-white photographs that result generate a haunting, surrealistic quality. Barcelona-based artist-scholar Fontcuberta provides a lucid essay on documentary photography. Recommended for comprehensive photography collections.?Joan Levin, MLS, Chicago
