Nino Fidencio: A Heart Thrown Open
by Dore Gardner
Publisher's Description
With visceral testimony and forty five vivid black-and-white photographs, Dore Gardner pays tribute to the life and legacy of Niño Fidencio Sintora Constantino, curandero of rural northeastern Mexico. Also included are a curious collection of hand-colored snapshots taken of the Niño by his followers. "Lovers and collectors of photographic art will be drawn to this splendid visual work, and a broad spectrum of those interested in Mexican folk life and the wider concerns of traditional healing and religion will consider this book a valuable record."--the publisher.
