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.

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.
