Antigua, Guatemala 2021

By Edward Rivera | November 13, 2022

I was living in Beijing China during the pandemic and decided it would be a good idea to leave before any major restrictions had been set in place. I ended up traveling to Guatemala on April 25, 2021. At that time, wearing masks in public was still a policy for residents but seemed like it was optional for tourists. During my exploration of Antigua, while photographing a series focusing on Spanish colonial style architecture, I saw two Mayan women walking with their daily grocery haul wearing traditional Mayan attire and their masks down in plain sight. I could tell that people had had enough of the restrictions.
