Print four of folio of 6 photogravure prints with 5 screenprinted text pages. English text is based on the 1609 translation by Richard Hakluyt, translated from the Portuguese text written by a member of de Soto’s expedition in 1557.

At Graphicstudio’s invitation, Iturbide traveled to Tampa to produce a portfolio of six photogravures of contemporary Florida, accompanied with text from the first expedition of Hernan de Soto to Florida in 1553. Espiritu Santo is a layering of image and history, as a present day Hispanic woman meets a Spaniard of the sixteenth century, on Tampa Bay, the site of de Soto’s first landing, which he christened “Espiritu Santo”.
