The translation is by Katherine Silver. Tinísima es la biografía que Elena Poniatowska escribió sobre la fotógrafa y militante de izquierda Tina Modotti.
The translation is by Katherine Silver. Más de una década tardó la escritora en terminar esta obra, y se nota. Una obra enorme, no solo por sus dimensiones sino por la profundidad que alcanza cuando recrea la vida de la gran artista.
Katherine Silver also translated Elena Poniatowska's Dear Diego. In "Tinisima," Poniatowska uses 1,000 pages of interviews, collected over 16 years, to imagine dialogue and interior monologues and from them to create a portrait of Tina Modotti and her times. Modotti was Edward Weston's most beautiful model. For a few years in the late 1920s, until she lost her nerve (or maybe her artistic sensibility), she was herself a photographer of note.
