Three simple shots of fountains found inside the patios of Casa Santo Domingo. In the picture above I decided to freeze the water in mid air to show the distinct drops. In the pictures below I went to opposite way and smooth the flow of water to show its movement. I played with running water without getting wet.
Mi Aldea Lancetillo Photo Exhibit Aside: Four members of the Club Fotográfico de Antigua went to Lancetillo to teach teen agers how to use cameras and photograph their reality.
Celebrate the vision of young Guatemala featuring the work of Project Einstein participants. Through six weeks of intensive training in the Zona Reyna, over 70 Q’eqchi’ Maya youth learned the basics of the photography, video and new media to tell the stories of their community, the flyer invitation reads.
The young photographers work is compiled and synthesized in the Mi aldea Lancetillo photo exhibit, which will open tomorrow at 6pm in Convento de Santa Clara, right across from Tanque de La Unión.
The Photo Exhibition will be open until September 17, 2010.
If you’re in Guatemala and can spare an hour, stop by the opening night and meet a few of the kids and members of the Club Fotográfico de Antigua who supported this photo exhibit through donations and logistics.
I share with you one the slide shows they did with the photographs taken by the Guatemalan youths. You can watch the other videos at the special page created by HablaGuate as well read all the background information. Also, you can read the name of all the people and sponsors at the Lancetillo web page. Flyer and video are a courtesy of HablaGuate.
