Les photographies de la Révolution Mexicaine dans la presse illustrée de Mexico (1910-1940) : de la chronique à l'iconisation

Abstract : This study is based on the following observation : among the few photographies of the Mexican Revolution that still circulate abundantly nowadays, most are hardly representative of the events’ complexity. Our aim is to understand how the original corpus of photographies has been constantly reduced. In the present work, we analyze one of the main vectors of this iconography : the illustrated press. Comparing photographies of the Civil War published during the Revolution (1910-1920) with photographies of the Post-Revolution (1921-1940), this study shows how certains types of images disappeared while others became « images-icons ». Emphasizing selected key events and figures of the Revolution, the illustrated press actually reinforced post-revolutionnary ideology through a well-targeted and symbolic iconography.
