And the Annex Presents:

Cidne Hart

Guatamala: A Tribute

Cidne Hart's photographs show Guatemalans celebrating their ancestors during their three-day national Day of the Dead holiday. She juxtaposes the photographs with text about the genocide that the Guatemalan military aimed at the indigenous Mayan population.

"Death does not mean absence of life, and there are different forms of life. For Mayas, in a way similar to that of Buddhists, the deceased community and family member becomes an ancestor, with whom the bereaved may remain in contact. From a cultural point of view for the Mayas death is not the opposite of life. The dead are "alive" in the community. Ancestors are present in everyday life. The living and the dead are both on Earth." Rituals, Social Sharing, Silence, Emotions and Collective Memory Claims in the Case of the Guatemalan Genocide, Carlos Marín Beristain, Darío Paez and José Luis González, page 118.
