Caption:

In Guatemala it is rare to encounter people who submit in such a relaxed and revealing way to a photograph. Most are shy or avoid cameras altogether. A few are eager and then mug stiffly. This girl looked up from where she was sitting on her family's plot in the cemetery and her gaze penetrated the lens, and came out through the back of the camera.
