Chichicastenango, Guatemala, early 90s
On the shore of Lake Atitlán, Guatemala, early 90s. The thing I love the most about these photos is the sheen on the Mayan man’s forearm and the way it highlights his thick veins ~~ blood as river, body as map.
These photos were taken in the early 90s. If memory serves, the village was somewhere on the shores of Lake Atitlán, Guatemala.
My favourite fountain of Central America.
Guatemala, early 90s. Photo taken by E.L. Where do the years go.

Communities of Garifuna people, who are the direct descendants of African slaves, are scattered along the small stretch of Guatemala’s eastern coastline on the Caribbean Sea. Shot was taken in 1991.
When we travel we often don’t understand what we’re seeing. I took this shot in the early 90s because I simply liked the landscape, and now I find out that the indigenous Mayans in Guatemala are suffering because their arable land has been stolen to produce sugar for foreign markets. Argh, the world is a mess.
