Photography and Memory

Near the top of my ever-growing "to read" list is Andrea Noble's Photography and Memory in Mexico: Icons of Revolution which explores a number of the famous photographic images made during the 1910-1920 revolution. Andrea analyses a small, but carefully chosen selection of photographs which were repeatedly reproduced across a range of media in the aftermath of the conflict, to reveal some "compelling stories about cultural memory and identity in the twentieth century and into the twenty-first century".
a more detailed outline of the book can be found on the Manchester University Press website
