An Exhibition

Chajil-Chupup-Image

Beginning this month I will have a photography exhibition at the Chehalem Cultural Center in Newberg, Oregon. The photos will all be of the Chajil Ch’upup cooperative from San Juan la Laguna, Guatemala – and half of the profit from sales will go to them to support their conservation efforts.

Join me on October 16th, from 5-8 PM for a reception at the Chehalem Cultural Center, or stop by anytime during regular hours from October 13th to November 21 to view the photographs on display.

Chajil Crossing from Robin Canfield on Vimeo.

The waters of Lake Atitlan in Guatemala are rising quickly, overtaking native plant life as well as human dwellings. This short clip shows a native Tz’utujil Mayan fisherman from San Juan la Laguna, a member of the Chajil Ch’upup fishermen’s cooperative, crossing the waters of the lake a short ways off shore.

Why We Hike

This is a great video that I edited and helped film in May and June of 2012.

Why We Hike from Actuality Media on Vimeo.

Hiking with Quetzaltrekkers was a great life experience, and one I will not soon forget. Nor will I ever forget the kids living at El Hogar that directly benefit from the work the volunteers at Quetzaltrekkers do. It was one of the most emotionally painful times of my life to listen to the sad stories of their lives – the horrors they have been put through – over and over again as I cut this film together. I cannot begin to imagine what their lives have really felt like, but I wish them the best and I’m glad they were willing to let us use their stories to help EDELAC as a whole.

Without a doubt, I’m going back to visit these guys next year and to play another game of football.
