In just about any culture the bed is a personal place. A place that symbolizes security and comfort. It's like the home within our homes. On March 14, 2012 I found my self on a bed that was as far from mine as a bed could be. In this case the bed was about 70% of the home. Across from it was a small propane stove that was placed on top of what doubled as the second clothing shelf and pantry. All around me hung laundry that was both recently washed but never cleaned.
This was the house of Manuel and Heidi Chuc Xul in a small town outside of La Antigua, Guatemala.
The family lives in complete povery in a house that is smaller than the average car. However they are no exception to the area. In fact, they are the average.
I don't have an amazing story about my self. I just want to make pictures that matter.
