About the artist:

LUIS GONZALEZ PALMA

Guatemalan Luis Gonzalez Palma's hand-painted gelatin silver prints show haunting images of the Mayan Indians. He captures the essence of these people and their culture by portraying them in theatrical, almost mythological costumes that signify elements of their ancient rituals and beliefs. The powerful white eyes engage and challenge the viewers who then become mesmerized. One also sees the pain and adness the Maya people have had to endure due to a violent and racist government. Despite their suffering, the people in these portraits remain dignified, soulful, and rich.
