Viva Colores! by Paola Gianturco

Book Description

This work is a vivid expression of a 1,500-year-old spirit that refuses to die, despite a ruinous civil war. The joyful cacophony of color that envelops visitors to Guatemala may seem misplaced at first. But to the authors of "[UNK]Viva Colores!", it is a vivid expression of an indomitable spirit that refuses to die. Photographer Paola Gianturco offers inspirational profiles of a people who have endured and, indeed, gained strength, thanks to the bounty of their land, their beliefs, traditions and kinship with one another, despite the almost ruinous civil war that has wracked the country for 36 years.
