Guatemala: Image of Victims

The blog PeruFotoLibre draw my attention to the Flacso web project Tramas, dealing with visual culture in Latin America.

Lira points out that such images can be found 'from Mexico to the South' and that reflecting on them may be one way of initiating and sustaining a respect for human rights. See a larger version and read more about it here.
