Real Guatemala: Los Policías

Rudy Giron: Instagrams &emdash; Los policías

Alright, we will finish the first part of the Real Guatemala series with portrait of two police officers who were deployed during Semana Santa, Holy Week, to keep everyone “safe.” Only a few times during the year we get the opportunity of seeing so much policías on the streets of Antigua Guatemala, but never as during the Holy Week, there are at least two police officers for every block of Antigua Guatemala and several hundred more through out the city. Still, the reports of pick-pocketing never ceased.

I will prepare another set of posts to continue the series about the Real Guatemala and, perhaps, I should do a series about the Real Antigua Guatemala, what do you guys think?

    You should take as many portraits as you possibly can. These officers looks a bit different compared with the ones I have photographed in Haninge.

    I like the real Guatemala photos, since I am not going this summer :( it will keep me busy and remind me of what I am missing out on.
