Introduction by Sandra S. Phillips. Afterword by Richard Rodriquez. From The Ground Up is a three-part photographic essay focusing on the metamorphosis of the vernacular architecture in the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico.
publishers text: “It’s beautifully made color photography and an achievement of enormous richness. Eduardo del Valle & Mirta Gómez have followed one thread with great tenacity. I don’t know of any other body of work quite like it.” – John Szarkowski. The Cuban-born husband and wife team of Eduardo del Valle and Mirta Gómez have worked collaboratively for thirty years, receiving international acclaim for their photographs of subjects in a state of flux. From The Ground Up, the first monograph of their work, is a three-part photographic essay focusing on the metamorphosis of the vernacular architecture in the Yucatán Peninsula, México. This fascinating study, comprising photographs taken from the mid-1980s to the present, is surely the most extensive and comprehensive record of the design and evolution of this region’s built structures. Del Valle and Gómez are recipients of Guggenheim, Cintas and NEA fellowships in photography. Their work has been widely exhibited in the USA and abroad, and is in the permanent collections of The Museum of Modern Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and Brooklyn Museum. Essays by Sandra S. Phillips and Richard Rodriguez. Hardcover with tipped-in cover plate, 9 x 12, 112 pages, 82 four-color plates.
