Summary
  • Al mediar el siglo XIX, la fotografiá mexicana era una actividad que no gozaba del espacio social que toda forma cultural necesita para desenvolverse: emancipada apenas de la primera impresioń que produjo--semejante, en maś de un sentido, a la que causo ́el cinematoǵrafo medio siglo maś tarde--pero auń lastrada por obstaćulos tećnicos que impedián el registro instantańeo y la reproduccioń masiva, no era faćil augurarle un futuro promisorio. Vino la guerra, sin embargo, y la gran historia desbrozo ́el campo a la fotografiá. En el punto culminante del conflicto interno que sacudio ́a Mex́ico entre 1854 y 1867, la propaganda recurrio,́ por primera vez, a la "objetividad" fotograf́ica para legitimar su discurso. La imagen del archiduque Fernando Maximiliano de Habsburgo no fue nunca, en consecuencia, simplemente una imagen. A la hora del establecimiento del imperio, en 1864, sirvió para convencer, para deslumbrar; para sacralizar. Y en la hor de su fracaso, en el Cerro de las Campanas, denuncio ́y documento ́el crimen del liberalismo regicida. Entre estado dos momentos--a causa de estos dos instantes--, la fotografiá hecha en nuestro paiś sufrio ́una honda transformacioń, de la que da cuenta La fotografiá durante el imperio de Maximiliano. Su uso para "documentar" la prostitucioń, la prosapia de la corte imperial o la identidad de los personajes maś connotados en Mex́ico y en Europa queda de manifesto en esta investigacioń novedosa, uno de cuyos soportes principales es un trabajo hemerograf́ico escrupuloso y prolijo
  • By the mid-nineteenth century, Mexican photography was an activity that did not enjoy the social space that every cultural form needs to develop: emancipated only from the first impression it produced - similar, in more ways than one, to that caused by the cinematograph half a century later - but still weighed down by technical obstacles that prevented instant registration and mass reproduction, it was not easy to predict a promising future. The war came, however, and the great story cleared the field of photography. At the climax of the internal conflict that shook Mexico between 1854 and 1867, propaganda appealed, for the first time, to photographic "objectivity" to legitimize its discourse. The image of Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian of Habsburg was never, therefore, simply an image. At the time of the establishment of the empire, in 1864, it served to convince, to dazzle; to sacralize. And in the wake of his failure, in the Cerro de las Campanas, he denounced and documented the crime of regimental liberalism. Between state two moments - because of these two instants--, the photography made in our country underwent a profound transformation, which is accounted for by photography during the empire of Maximilian. Its use to "document" prostitution, the prose of the imperial court or the identity of the most famous figures in Mexico and Europe is evident in this novel research, one of whose main supports is a scrupulous and prolific newspaper work
