Our Culture is our Resistance
Repression, Refuge and Healing in Guatemala

Between 1993 and 2001 I worked as a human rights advocate and free-lance photographer in Guatemala,
principally working with indigenous Mayans uprooted by that country’s long and brutal civil war. I spent much of
my time in rural areas, working to support Guatemala’s displaced and refugee populations in their struggle for
respect of their basic rights. more
