Publisher Comments:

A new edition of the sought-after classic by this distinguished Mexican photographer

Available now for the first time in English as a deluxe hardcover edition, Witnesses of Time collects Flor Garduño's remarkable pictures of the original America, where the sacred and symbolic are revealed in daily life. In remote corners of Mexico and Central and South America, native Indians continue to practice ancient rituals as they have for millennia. Their rites embody a distinct worldview and a unique perception of time.

The result of travels through rural towns in Mexico, Guatemala, Peru, Bolivia, and Ecuador, Witnesses of Time encompasses landscape, architecture, ceremonies, tableaux, and portraits. Figures in Garduño's evocative images become clues to the spirituality of the Indian cosmos. Landforms hint at other, unseen orders of being. Common acts take on an extra dimension through their ritual associations in communities that still retain their ties to the environment.

Complemented by an Introduction by the world-renowned Mexican novelist Carlos Fuentes, Witnesses of Time is a monument to a fascinating way of life, portrayed with an unparalleled sensibility.

About the Author
