Revealing Mexico
by John Mack
Publisher's Description
In 2010, Mexico observes two important anniversaries: the bicentennial of its independence from Spain and the centennial of the Mexican Revolution. These two milestones offer the country's 111 million citizens and 30 million Mexican Americans an unprecedented opportunity to rediscover and celebrate their shared heritage. Revealing Mexico by John Mack and Susanne Steines is an astonishing new photographic and literary portrait of the country.

For a period of eight years, up-and-coming American photographer Mack and writer Steines crisscrossed Mexico photographing its vibrant city and rural life, its stunning architecture, striking landscapes, and captivating people. With roughly 175 images representing all 31 states, from the canyons of Chihuahua to the Mayan ruins of Chiapas, from the indigenous communities of Oaxaca to the bustling port towns of the Yucatán, as well as the skyscrapers and thoroughfares of the Federal District, Revealing Mexico offers a poetic vista of Mexico's landscape today. What's more, Revealing Mexico also includes portraits of individuals from all walks of Mexican life—luminaries, authors, artists, academics, politicians, fishermen, business titans, street vendors, and farmers among others—each accompanied by his or her own words about what it is to be Mexican.
