Guatemalan Portraits: Face to Face

Guatemalan Portraits: Face to Face by Rudy A. Girón

Here’s the essence of the Guatemalan dichotomy for you. On one side, those with very strong roots to their ancestors and on the other side those who want to be anything else, but themselves; fully alienated pues. On one hand, the man explaining the details and intricacies of a Maya ceremony and on the other hand the woman, after having learned the details, explaining that the Maya ceremony is very similar to what Hindus do. That’s Guatemala for you.

    Is the American flag in reverse or your photo is in mirror mode.

    • No, the photo is correct, perhaps the lady pasted the flag the wrong way.

    Great color and design on the man’s jacket.  
    Rudy, I am curious as to why you feel the lady is ” fully alienated” ?

    That woman talks too much. 🙂
