Street Portraiture in Antigua Guatemala

Rudy Giron: &emdash; Street Portraiture in Antigua Guatemala

Another goal that I set for myself this year is to do many more street portraits of locals and visitors alike. I want to share the faces of the people I meet and perhaps a tiny bit about their lives. For instance, I took the portrait of this couple who were sitting together working on the frame they are holding in their hands. I was across the street and while I cross it, I set the camera setting as I approach them. I took a few photos, but this one with the smile was my favourite.

As I mentioned last Friday with the street portrait of contemporary photographer Eny Roland, street portraits is another category I will be focusing in this year. Stay tuned for more updates!

    Awesome Rudy! For someone who was ready to throw in the towel on ADP, you sure have started the year with a storm of creativity. Based on the hand gesture of the gentleman, I would add a subtitle : “hay tiempo para mas”

    • Well, NYChapin, you guys inspire me, what can I say.

    Rudy, is this the couple that run a furniture shop about 6 blocks away from the plaza mayor, going toward Volcan Agua? I believe it is; I still have their business card with me. Wonderful people, and fantastic furniture in their shop. They told me that I need a house nearby, so that their sons can supply me with furniture. A tempting proposition!

    • Yes Eric, what are you waiting for, life is too damn short and time stops for no one.

        Fijate, ‘mano: Life is very short, but I have just finished helping my Mom recover from a bit of an ‘economic drought’, and the travel fund is very, very low. The current plan is to work very, very hard for a few months, and then return to Guatelinda during the wet season (looks like I will miss the dry season yet again). Maybe I stay for a few weeks, maybe I never return to the ‘corner pocket’. Saber? Counting Eric ‘out’ is never, ever a good thing….ha-ha-ha!
