Transculturation in Antigua Guatemala

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; I am Guatemala 3 BW

I have decided that Transculturation will be the title of my next photo exhibit. It will consist in a series of portraits of Guatemalans showcasing the effects of transculturation. Today I share with you a first take on what the series might look like: a young Guatemalan with clothing and accessories showing the cultures he identifies with. In this case, Quetzalteca t-shirt, Dallas baseball cap, Adidas sport pants, Vans skateboarding shoes [not shown], and a Puma gym bag. Perhaps, I had started much earlier with this series, but it was only recently that I was able to put my finger on it.

Of course, this is also part of the series I am Guatemala, don’t you agree?

Join me and others on a fun and informative photo walk next time you visit Guatemala. For more information click on or read the reviews on TripAdvisor.

    I think is a great idea and very interesting series. And you are right, you have covered some of it in the past. Given that technology and transportation are integral to this global phenomenon, perhaps you can also shed light on the places people shop for this items and any factories that locally manufacture them. Also, are people buying online ?
