Guatemalan Portraits: Maya Girls

Guatemalan Portraits: Maya Girls by Rudy A. Girón

One of the things about cultural and traditional events that I like is that they are people magnets and it’s so much easier to photograph people and situations that normally are difficult. Take as an example the photograph of the Guatemalan lady and the Maya man from yesterday or the ease with I was able to capture these Maya teenagers while they pay attention to the Mayan ceremony (see video clip from two days ago).

Oh what a culturally rich and diverse country is Guatemala for being such a small territory, don’t you think?

  • love seeing the different expressions from each of them – sad, contemplative, waiting… everything we can ever imagine what their thoughts were.

    Yes, Rudy, I agree completely.  This is a great shot.  The mujercitas remind me of my goddaughter, who is growing up too quickly for me.  Her father (mi buen amigo) tells me that he will be happy when she finishes her education, finds a husband and moves out of the house.  I say “But that’s my little girl ! Not so fast !”, and we all laugh.  Her father gives her a home, clothing, feeds her…and I get the gray hairs.  🙁
