Jonathan Moller

Jonathan Moller spent ten years in Guatemala photographing rural Mayan communities at war with the government. The stories he tells are tragic, heartbreaking, and beautiful. A monograph of this body of work is titled Our Culture is Our Resistance. (Note the images on Moller's personal website are presented with lots of compression. Slightly better quality images are viewable, although without context, here.)

this book was a gift from my girlfriend when I turned 29 in Guatemala. This is a really beautiful book, one of my favorites on the shelf. I really admire his ability to gain the trust of the Mayans.
