Ultimately, photography is subversive not when it frightens, repels, or even stigmatizes, but when it is pensive, when it thinks.--Roland Barthes
"During the 1970s, the publisher Siglo XXI Editions, based in Mexico, Argentina and Spain, produced a number of photobooks with a radical political stance, using leading photographers from Latin America to talk about the region. Like Nacho Lopez, Enrique Bostelmann was one of Mexico's leading postwar photojournalists. Like Lopez, he could be termed a 'concerned photographer', and one looking to expose injustice everywhere. America: Un viaje a traves de la injusticia (America: Journey Through Injustice), published in 1970, is correctly considered his masterpiece, and right from the books powerful cover--which shows an anonymous pair of hands bound together with rope being dragged along by a person or persons unknown - his political concern is made absolutely clear...Bostelmann's style is that if the gritty street photographer, but he has a cinematic sense of narrative and takes care not to be too dramatic, letting the pictures speak for themselves."--Parr & Badger
Included in The Latin American Photobook, edited by Horacio Fernandez.
