When we talk about visual culture, we move between different spheres and temporalities: from the fire and the shadows in the cave to the hypervisual experience of our time. Photography belongs to the world of visual culture and in this work the objective is to analyze the experiences and visual practices contained in the photographs of the Revolution in Sinaloa between the years 1911 and 1914. The repeated presence of the photographic image allows us to speak of a Revolution on a symbolic level, where men and women in arms collaborate with the photographers of their time, today affirming their place in the contest. Going through the pages of this book we look at the sequence of press photos and postcards that contained scenes of death, combat, daily life and exile. These images configured the visual experiences of the society of the time, circulated from hand to hand and gave shape to a massive visual spectacle that transcended local borders. Photography is a construction of reality and in this work that the reader has in his hands, he will find a history of the war and Sinaloa society in the photographic setting chosen by its author.
