Photographer's Note

I was photographing a couple when a little girl came up to me and asked me to take a picture of her grandmother. When I looked, the grandmother was tightening her hair, straightening her clothes and really preparing for the shot. you could tell it was very important to her. I took a few shots, and printed them out. I took them to her and she hated them because they were black and white. Of course. I printed out the colour originals and she was delighted. She still wanted to keep the b&w because she was scared of what I might do with them. In SAn CRistobal de las Casas, photography is tricky because of the indigenous belief that they will be used in black magic against the person being photographed.
