Itzá: a guatemala photostory

This is an ongoing project of mine that I’ve been working on with the Maya Itzá indigenous community in Guatemala alongside my dad and our friend Rob Green. See some of the photos I’ve taken over the past couple of years, along with a short clip of an interview with Don Reginaldo, the founder of BioItzá and one of the last native speakers of the Mayan Itzá language.

Abattoir

Rob and I also worked together to document meat production methods prevalent across Ghana. The practice of singeing the fur from slaughtered cows, sheep, and goats is commonplace, and the products are visually indistinguishable from those produced by methods proven to be safe and those that follow public health standards and regulations. With our project, we hope to educate and inform the public as well as the Ghanaian government so that meaningful change can be made to preserve and protect public health in Ghana.
