Tina Modotti: A Fragile Life
by Mildred Constantine
Publisher's Description
Originally published in 1975, this revised and expanded edition further clarifies the life and work of Modotti. Once an actress and artists' model, Modotti was subject, lover, and student of photographer Edward Weston. After moving to Mexico, her involvement in politics overshadowed her photography; she eventually moved to Europe and the Soviet Union, and finally back to Mexico where she died. This biography describes her photography, as well as her passionate attachments and political opposition to fascism and social injustice. A handsome book, a fascinating life.
