Guatemala...what do we know about photography that is happening in Guatemala? Seemingly a long distance away both geographically and culturally, perhaps not so much... The remarkable work of Luis Gonzales Palma has been on the radar of the international photography world for a long time, and most absolutely deservedly so. But in addition to this, what else?
As you may know, as part of Critical Mass, we extend a large handful of scholarships to photographers based in countries that may be flying under the radar, and whose work we think our Critical Mass jurors should see. In past years, scholarships have been given to photographers from Poland, Italy, Mexico, The Netherlands, and Georgia. This year, we are pleased to offer this opportunity to these select photographers from Guatemala - JJ Estrada & Clara de Tezanos, Daniel Chauche, Jorge Luis Chavarria Aleman, Alejandro Medina, and Bryon Marmol.
