Pedro Páramo
By Juan Rulfo
Photographs by Joséphine Sacabo
Translated by Margaret Sayers Peden

Octavio Paz has said that "Juan Rulfo is the only Mexican novelist who has given us an image - instead of just a description - of our landscape." By the same token we could say that Joséphine Sacabo is the only photographer who has given us an image of that most elusive of landscapes conceived of by Juan Rulfo - Comala -- Buenos Aires Herald

Deserted villages of rural Mexico, where images and memories of the past linger like unquiet ghosts, haunted the imaginations of two artists - writer Juan Rulfo and photographer Joséphine Sacabo.

This volume brings together Rulfo's novel, Pedro Páramo, and Sacabo's photographs to offer a dual artistic vision of the same unforgettable story. Joséphine Sacabo's photographs tell, in her words, "the story of a woman forced to take refuge in madness as a means of protecting her inner world from the ravages of the forces around her: a cruel and tyrannical patriarchy, a church that offers no redemption, the senseless violence of revolution, death itself."

Juan Rulfo (1918 - 1986) was one of Mexico's premier authors of the twentieth century and an important precursor of magical realism in Latin American writing.

Raised in Laredo, Texas, in the Mexican ranchero culture about which Juan Rulfo writes, Joséphine Sacabo is a photographer who now lives and works in New Orleans.

This book is a visual collaboration of friendship, in which Mark Seliger, famed Rolling Stone photographer, has captured Kravitz on the road, with his family, performing, with his friends, and often in the unique fashion that has become Kravitz's signature style.

Seliger's sexy and intimate photographs in Lenny Kravitz underscore the energy and appeal of this singular performing artist.
