This group of photographs was taken in 1966 as La Violencia in Guatemala was increasing. Their historical value is the intimate and authentic slice of life they recorded at that critical juncture 50 years ago. They were taken with a Pentax H1a and just two lenses without benefit of TTL. They were mostly shot on EktachromeX and then miraculously survived a half century of neglect in a cardboard box in a series of garages. I just recently digitized the survivors and share some them here with you.
