The shadow of the portrait photographer - whose name, by the way, is Agustín Víctor Casasola - is what turned this from a “Like” into a “Reblog.”
I’d never heard of Casasola before. From the linked article:
Among the masters of 20th century photography, Agustín Víctor Casasola is a little-known figure outside of Mexico, America’s Southwest and California.
Armed with only a camera, Casasola made it his mission to tell the story of the dramatic events surrounding the Mexican Revolution. During the first four decades of the new century, he took over 480,000 photographs, a small selection of which makes up “Mexico: The Revolution & Beyond.”
Along the way, Casasola helped to establish and bring to fruition the photo-journalistic profession. He was also a driving force behind one of the world’s first professional photographic agencies.
While an obscure character outside of Mexico’s borders, Agustín Víctor Casasola has had a profound influence on Mexican culture and the dissecting of the country’s history.
