Title: Uprooted: Braceros in the Hermanos Mayo Lens

Author: John Mraz and Jaime Velez Storey

Description: Softcover. Light wear. Top corner bumped. Interior is clean and unmarked. Eighty-six photographs. 141 pages.

This work serves as a double introduction: first, to the Spanish left-wing photojournalist collective, the Hermanos Mayo, who were exiled following the Spanish Civil War, and second to Mexican images of the guest workers. The authors plumbed the rich Mayo Brothers collection in Mexico's National Archive to select the photos represented here on one of the most controversial cross-cultural subjects of their time, the Bracero Program, which had been established during World War II to bring in guest workers during the labor shortage. The 86 photographs are preceded by 50 pages of scholarly introduction.
