Somewhere around half of all photos I take are extreme close ups. It’s as though an entire universe of detail exists; only appreciated by the careful observer. Analogues of landscapes and all the organic beauty of this earth is hidden in every face. These are just a few of my favorites.
In the beginning of April I picked up a gig photographing for an anthropologist (L) studying witchcraft in Nebaj, Quiche, Guatemala. Having lived in the city for 6 months by then and never having heard of brujaism, I wasn't expecting to find much. I had no idea what existed just beneath the surface.
About 3 months into my life in Guatemala I hitched a ride on the back of a motorcycle. From that moment hitchhiking became my primary means of transportation in Central America. These are a few of the photos I gathered along the way.
