Guatemala / by jessica Peterson

During the month of February I was lucky enough to go to Guatemala with Ali Hynek and her family to photograph a little bit behind the scenes of their company, Nena and Co.  Nena and Co. Ali has made it possible for the Maya women to be paid a fair price for the beautiful skilled textile work.  

Guatemala was beautiful, the people were beautiful and the colors were phenomenal, as you can see below I was in photography heaven.

 I am so happy to have been able to witness the first hand how much Ali and her family love their Native country and how they are working to give back all they can where they see need. 

Check out Nena and Co. if you would like to see the magic she makes with the magic of the textiles.
