Publishers Weekly, 2003-10-20 With his brother Miguel, Agustin Victor Casasola (1874-1938) established the world's first photo agency, based on Agustin's prolific news photo work. This book selects 155 shots from among the 500,000 by various photographers in the archive, detailing different parts of Mexico and Mexican history from 1900 to 1940. As Hamill (A Drinking Life) makes clear about Casasola's photos of the revolution, "He was seeing things that few urbanized Mexicans had ever seen, but he brought to them an eye trained by the drama of the city itself."
