Through Each Other’s Eyes – Guatemala Exchange
December 14th 2020 – February 20, 2021
This exhibit of photographs by image-makers from different cultures explores their dissimilar worlds. Two individuals from Arizona, Rebecca Wilks from Yarnell and Geoff Reed from Phoenix, and two from Guatemala, Rony Mejia and Javier Alvarez-Vassaux both from Guatemala City, consecutively hosted their counterparts for ten days of road travel to capture iconic imagery of their respective lands.
The photographs explore how cultural background informs a person’s unique vision, ranging from the Guatemalans’ surprised response to the vast, open, sparsely populated vistas of the arid American Southwest, to the Arizonans’ joyful reaction to the vibrant color and bustling population of tropical Guatemala.
