Ruinas y la gente

Antigua is a trove of street photography and of ruins left by the earthquake of 1773. The enormous quake prompted the capital of Guatemala to move from Antigua to Ciudad Vieja and later to Guatemala City. That was a good thing for Antigua and for visitors who can revel in the Spanish Colonial city, Guatemala’s cultural hub. The beautiful town has remained small and its colonial architecture and abundant ruins occupy every block or so it seems.

Today, however, we look at the human stories that prevail on its streets.

You are connecting with Antigua in a big way. It shows in your most excellent environmental/street portraits. They are stunning, and rich in tone and truth. We are anxious to see more of your visual thoughts about the place upon your return. Keep up the great work!
