Sagrado: A Photopoetics across the Chicano HomelandLevi Romero, Spencer R. Herrera/assets/publications/romero_sagrado.jpgsite:// V2/assets/publications/ V2romero_sagrado.jpg10271150225

Un lugar sagrado, a sacred place where two or more are gathered in the name of community, can be found almost anywhere and yet it is elusive: a charro arena behind a rock quarry, on the pilgrimage trail to Chimayó, a curandero's shrine in South Texas, or at a binational Mass along the border. Sagrado is neither a search for identity nor a quest for a homeland but an affirmation of an ever-evolving cultural landscape. Embedded at the heart of this remarkable book, in which prose, photographs, and poems complement each other, is a photopoetic journey across the Chicano Southwest.
