This new book brings together for the first time a collection of photographs taken on two separate visits to Mexico - the first in 1934, just as the young twenty-seven-year-old was embarking on his photographic career, and the second some thirty years later. The dramatic images record with brutal accuracy the panorama of everyday life - an execution wall; crowded markets; stark, dusty landscapes; children playing in alleys - a unique record of a country and its people that includes some of the most famous and powerful photographic images of the century.
