Every year, the Historic Center of Guatemala organizes the 'Festival del Centro Historico' with cultural and artistic activities. One of the activities is the Body Paint Festival, which takes place in one of the main pedestrian streets of the 6th Avenue within the very center of the Historical Center. Organized by 'Colectivo Contraste' and 'Asi es mi Guate', they showed a creative, professional and responsible effort within the whole organization.
"The Face of the Earth" with the original title in the Quiche ideology of "Ru Wätch Ulew" (one of the liguistica families of the Mayan languages of our cultural pluralism) is the name of the Festival on this occasion
This collection of 84 photographs does not try to represent any special momento. I like to represent (in some photos) the sensation of touching, the beauty of each particular moment in others and the different activities. Although I document the event is not a documentary photograph and I apologize for the greater number of photographs (not only 10 or 20 as a standard) because I did not want to have any pressure to enjoy the photograph. Because in this festival I just wanted to enjoy with photographs that you might like. If you like, I suggest that as you see them, put classical music as the first Bach violin concerto. Thank you.
