Luis Fernando Noriega Grajeda

He began his professional career in fine art photography in Australia and continued to grow artistically in Italy, the US, and Guatemala. His view is that any type of photography relies on the creativity to see things with different eyes by viewing the world and focusing in fractions of time in order to put them together to make a story. Currently he is working on some humanitarian photography projects. In the past, he also focused on food photography as well as pet and animal photography, architectural photography, and portraiture. 

I began to develop my appreciation for photography with the premise that every image tells a story. Being based in Antigua Guatemala, a city that is filled with history, gave me the perfect environment to hone in on the details of everyday life with a background that completes the frame by contrasting the old and the new.

Framing is a very important part of my photography. I always consider what the foreground and the background are conveying in order to make the image complete. I will sometimes wait hours on end to “get the shot” in the right location. I believe that if you wait long enough something will happen in front of the camera that is worth photographing.

A good writer possesses not only his spirit but also the spirit of the subjects he writes about. Much like any photographer has an undeniable connection to his surroundings. For me, that perception-altering connection is made whenever I make an image. Whether it’s taking a portrait of someone in Antigua during their religious processions or a Mayan person in a traditional costume participating in a traditional dance in the highlands of Guatemala. It’s all about making a connection with the subject as soon as they step in front of my camera.

For this collection I want to share two sides of Guatemala. The Catholic and the Maya. Both of these cultures forever intertwined for hundreds of years.

 

Joe Morel

I’m so grateful to be living in a time of beauty and technology. We have the ability to share the things we create and the moments we spend together. I’m an adventurer. A creative soul who will always make a connection with whatever environment I encounter.

I have a wide background in photography starting as a passionate hobby for me in my early 20’s. I was traveling around the country with my business at the time and when I would finish up for the day I would have the beautiful sunsets happening right in front of me. Wherever I happened to be that week I would go find the most interesting and picturesque spots. I would spend multiple days in these places and would do the same events year over year so I saw these places in all kinds of varied light. I would come back to my lodgings, which was usually a small campervan that I had just driven around photo hunting and edit or watch tutorials on how to make the images the way I wanted to. I credit my early inspiration to Trey Ratcliff (www.stuckincustoms.com). Before the book, before New Zealand, Trey was an innovator and still is and I admire what he has done throughout the years. I learned a tremendous amount from Kelby Media and the pros on there. Joe Mcnally, Cliff Mautner, Scott, so many guys on there convey information in a way that you can actually learn from and its real life shoots.

I started shooting events locally over 6 years ago. I did my first wedding third shooting for my very talented sister, Pamela Bhatia owner of Artistic Images RI, and under the eye of Al Weems. I never forget he asked me, what’s the widest, fast lens you have? 11 MM F4 I said. He said great. Put it on that and get close. Jumped right in. I want all the people who have helped me along the way to know that I appreciate it immensely. I will always share knowledge and educate others because good people did that for me.

In the years since I have built a full studio kit and learned the intricacy of Flash and controlled flash photography. I will always be a student in all forms of photography. Within the last 2 years I have expanded into drone work. Getting certified last year and logging many hours with a 4k DJI drone platform. I do still, video, media content such as VR and 360 work. Doing all kinds of exciting things with it from corporate highlight reels and group shots to beautiful ocean sunrises from points all along the northeast coast.

While the traditional native dress has disappeared in many parts of the world, in the highlands of Guatemala, Indigenous men and women still wear their traditional Traje. Today, indigenous women of Santa Catarina Palopo continue to carry on the art of hand-woven weaving on a back-strap loom, producing clothing (traje) for their family as well as for tourists.

The most recognizable characteristic of Santa Catarina Palopo traje is the deep blue huipil, or blouse, that is proudly worn by the women throughout the community. Maya traje is striking in color and vary village specific when it comes to design, color, pattern, and length. Each village traje has unique specific designs and color that is indicative to their village and is a statement of their culture.

Through their weaving’s the women of Santa Catarina Palopo play an important role in keeping their Mayan culture alive. Típicos Pérez is an amazing family run shop located along the right hand side of the road just past the colonial Catholic Church in Santa Catarina Palopo as you are traveling in the direction towards San Antonio PalopóThe shop sells a vast array of indigenous clothing in the form of huipil (blouse), corte (skirt), faja (belt), and calzoncillos (short pants).

For 20 years at this family run business, the practice of traditional weaving has been passed on from grandmother to mother to daughter. Currently there are three generations of the family, María Sajvin along with her two daughters, and her mother artfully weaving the majority of the clothing sold in their shop to support their families.
