Product Description

Hardcover book of photographs, NEW condition.
"For the past ten years Jonathan Moller has photographed communities uprooted by war in Guatemala. The result is Our Culture Is Our Resistance, a collection of portraits taken during that decade, revealing stories of life and death, of hope and despair, and of struggles for survival, respect, and truth. The beauty and strength of Moller's photographs and the accompanying texts not only document and preserve the faces and events associated with this land and its history, but also display for the viewer the humanity and dignity of these largely Mayan indigenous peoples. Featuring one hundred forty-seven tritone portraits, Our Culture Is Our Resistance also includes a preface by Guatemalan Nobel Peace Laureate Rigoberta Menchú Tum; short essays by Ricardo Falla, Francisco Goldman, and Susanne Jonas; and prose and poetry by Humberto Ak'abal, Heather Dean, Julia Esquivel, Eduardo Galeano, Francisco Morales Santos. In addition, the book includes testimonies and reflections by Guatemalan community members and survivors, as well as statements by , Eduardo Galeano, photographer Sebastião Salgado, and William F. Schulz, Executive Director of Amnesty International USA. Among the sponsors and official endorsers of Our Culture Is Our Resistance are Amnesty International, the Soros Foundation, Global Exchange, The Nation Institute, the Photo Review, Witness for Peace, and Cultural Survival."
