Description - Witnesses of Time by Flor Garduno

"Witnesses of Time" collects Flor Garduno's remarkable pictures where the sacred and symbolic are revealed in daily life. In remote corners of Central and South America, native Indians continue to practice ancient rituals as they have for millennia. Their rites embody a distinct worldview and a unique perception of time. The result of travels through ritual towns in Mexico, Guatemala, Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador, "Witnesses of Time" encompasses landscape, architecture, ceremonies, tableaux and individual portraits. Figures in Garduno's evocative images become clues to the spirituality of the Indian cosmos. Landforms hint at other as unseen orders of being. Common acts take on an extra dimension through their ritual associations, in communities that still retain their ties to the environment. Complemented by an introduction by the renowned Mexican novelist Carlos Fuentes, "Witnesses of Time" is a tribute to a fascinating way of life, portrayed with an unparalleled grace.
