The Itinerant Photographers of Guatemala
These striking portraits of Indians dressed in richly ornamented clothing and posed in front of brightly painted backdrops record the ongoing folk tradition of itinerant photography. They were taken over a period of several years while the authors traveled with itinerants to village fairs throughout Guatemala. Ann Parker's work is represented in such major collections as the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Avon Neal has written extensively on folk culture.
