In The Shadow of Volcanoes
IN THE SHADOW OF VOLCANOES is a collection of monochrome photographs made in the streets of La Antigua, Guatemala. Made during the free hours I had while teaching at the Foundry Photojournalism Workshop, these photographs depict what I saw walking La Antigua’s cobblestone streets, and during the annual fiesta of Santiago de los Caballeros de Guatemala. La Antigua is surrounded by three volcanoes; Acatenango, Volcán de Agua and the Volcán de Fuego.
Most of the photographs were made used a Leica M9 and a Voigtlander 40mm lens, and a few with a Fuji X Pro-1 and a Fujinon 28mm lens. All photographs are © 2014 Tewfic El-Sawy.
