About this project  These photos were made in the village of Naha located in the Lacandon rainforest of Chiapas, Mexico. Here, I met village elders, the late Chan Kin Viejo and Mateo Viejo, then in their 90’s, still working in the milpa and practicing indigenous, non christian rituals.  The Lacandon of today face a constant struggle between their connections to an eternal past and an increasingly smaller world that
surrounds them.
