See also the companion book, Mexico: 64 photographs, by Fritz Henle, which included this passage on the origin of the photographs:  "In 1936, Henle saw Mexico for the first time and, impressed by the paradoxical countray with its centuries-old cultures and its revolution into modernism, he started plans for this photographic essay.  In 1943, at the invitation of the Mexican government, he went back to do a photodocumentary job, a camera sketch book." -- from the preface by John R. Whiting.
