24 Frames of Film: The Accounting Firm

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

The Accounting Firm of Patricia Porras in La Antigua Guatemala has to be THE accounting firm of this colonial town. Quite possibly the largest accounting firm. Patty Porras has been my account ever since moved to La Antigua Guatemala in 2002. Most people that I know use this accounting firm.

This photograph is part of the 24 frames of film project. My analog film theme was entitled “Come in” [“Pase adelante” in Spanish] which is what vendors would say as you enter their business. I tried to show all kinds of business as seen from the doorway. About half the roll is from tiny business found in villages around Antigua Guatemala while the rest of the roll was captured on the more affluent shops in downtown Antigua Guatemala.

To my taste, analog film 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!
