Day of the Construction Worker

Rudy Giron: &emdash; Guatemalan Portrait: Worker Up Close

As I have mentioned before, on May 3, In Guatemala and many countries in Latin America is celebrated the Day of the Holy Cross and also the Day of the Construction Worker. The Day of the Holy Cross is known in Guatemala as Dí­a de la Santa Cruz and you can see many Albañiles (construction workers) placing an adorned cross at their current construction site. For this occasion, I share with you a street portrait of a construction worker or albañil as we call them in Guatemala. Guess, how close I was when I took this portrait?
