24 Frames of Film: Guatemalan Candies

Rudy Giron: 24 frames of film May 2015 &emdash;

Here’s your Spanish word of the day: Dulcerí­a or candy store.

La Dulcerí­a de Doña Marí­a Gordillo is quite possibly the most well-known candy store in La Antigua Guatemala. As I stated back in 2006, this candy store has been reviewed and profiled in numerous magazines and newspapers. The land and house where is located the world-famous candy store has a history that begins in 1546, a little over 460 years ago. The candy shop, however, was established about 130 years ago.

This is the first time I captured this store on analog film, which by the way I am enjoying tremendously. To my taste, it is raw and grainy; analog film gives the possibility to show a different aesthetic to the over-exposed and over-photographed Antigua Guatemala. Soon I will have black and white film developed and new images will come this way. Stay tuned!
