Photo and caption by Yen Chao
This is a shot that I capture when I was travel in Guatemala Sept 2012. This old lady is typical Maya peoples lives at Santiago Atitlán. She was passing by with basket of grocery hold on her head. Her eyes and face just catch my attention. Toughness, poorness, pity, all shows on her face. I decide to use black and white to present this photo, also use red filter to make her face and clothes more "retro" look. For me, black and white is the best way to annotation and interpretation those people who lives in central and south america.
Location: Lake Atitlan at Guatemala
