Magic Eyes: Scenes from an Andean Childhood
by Wendy Ewald
Publisher's Description
Magic Eyes is a book about childhood, the politics of poverty, creativity, and magic that weaves them all together. The text is created from stories of two Columbian children, Alicia and Maria Vasquez. The sixty black-and-white photographs, made by Wendy Ewald and the children of Raquira, Columbia, show the province of El Valle, "known for violence, magic, and coca production." Other photographs come from Alicia's barrio on the outskirts of Bogotá. This is "a perfect book, which [offers] transparent, stubborn words that blend and echo with magic images."--Ariel Dorfman.
