"Hernan's novel itself was an example of the so-called agorista genre: gritty realist novels much influenced by American writers such as Theodore Dreiser and Upton Sinclair... It is Jimenez who makes this illustrated version of Hernan's novel Chimeneas an important modernist photobook." - Parr. THE PHOTOBOOK 1 p. 110. Cordova. AGUSTIN JIMENEZ. p. 216.
