Mayan girl ushers passers-by into a kite shop for All Saints' Day by Rudy Giron

Holga, Mayan girl tends and ushers passers-by into a kite shop for All Saints’ Day celebrations in Santiago Sacatepéquez, Guatemala. Day of the Dead and All Saints’ Day in Guatemala are celebrations that reunite the living with the dead.

This photograph was captured as part of my intensive Day of the Dead photo workshop. We had a full 10-hr day that took us everywhere to document the different ways Guatemalans celebrate Day of the Dead and All Saints Day. Make sure you book your spot for the 2019 Day of the Dead street photography workshop; spaces are limited!

Also, thanks to the German Photo Agency DPA, this photograph and other 8 images were published by many newspapers and online media websites around the world.
