Maya Portraits — Maya Woman Harvesting Coffee

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; Maya Portraits — Maya Woman Harvesting Coffee 2

This is a behind the scenes picture of a recent photo session I helped to set up for a photographer from abroad. Believe it or not, this was one of the most difficult photo sessions I have organised. For the photo shoot we needed a Maya woman, a horse, a farmer and coffee.

Simple right? Well, it was not. But with the help of my good friend Ruth, a Maya woman from San Antonio Aguascalientes and my friend Armando from San Pedro Las Huertas we were able to accommodate the requirements for the photo session, which took place in several fields of San Pedro Las Huertas with the help of don Juan Gabriel and Canchita, his mare.
