“Fran Antmann grew to know a culture, lived in it, merged with it, translated it, and loved it. She photographed the dreams that guide us to wisdom and healing, then wrapped those images in quetzal feathers. Today, she returns her vision of the world to the men and women she met through this encounter between cultures. It is a privilege to have been invited to write the preface to this book which is more than a book—it is a revelation.”
— Carolina Escobar Sarti, Guatemalan poet
“Fran Antmann’s work in Maya Healers, years in the making, is imbued with the depth and texture only great photography can achieve; where the images transcend being mere documents but reach great art. Many of the images, especially of the people in their daily lives, are transcendent and absolutely gorgeous, revealing an empathy and visual perception that is timeless.”
— Ed Kashi, international photojournalist.

I am pleased to be included in the second print issue of Documentum which “focuses on the serious play in the literary text-with-picture space happening in the Instagram arena.” This issue has been curated by artists and writers who work with text and image (including Teju Cole and Rebecca Norris Webb, among others).
The work in Documentum is from my forthcoming book “Maya Healers: A Thousand Dreams. My crowd funder that will help pay for the publication of the book will end in three days. Now at nearly 80% of my fundraising goal, I’m so deeply grateful for the support and involvement of 110 people.

I've documented the indigenous healers and bone setters struggling to keep traditional practises alive in the aftermath of Guatemala's devastating civil war. This is a project that I’ve been working on for many years and it’s been close to my heart.
