Graciela Iturbide White Fence

Graciela Iturbide: White Fence features notable Mexican photographer Graciela Iturbide’s images of the Chicano community in Boyle Heights. The title refers to the historical street gang known as White Fence that has held established territory in Boyle Heights since 1900. The publication includes two volumes with photographs Iturbide took in 1986 on assignment for the magazine A Day in the Life of America and culminating in a reunion in 2019.


Graciela Iturbide was born in 1942 in Mexico City. Her photographic documentation of Indigenous tribes of Mexico resulted in the publication of her book Juchitán de las Mujeres in 1989. Between 1980 and 2000, Iturbide continued to gain international recognition and was invited to work in various places, including Cuba, East Germany, India, Madagascar, Hungary, France and the United States.
