Title:

Todos Santos Cuchumatan, Guatemala.

Caption:

In the thin air and bright sun of the high mountain communities most women and girls drape a towel or length of cloth over their heads to shade their faces. This same towel can also be used as a cushion to carry heavy loads on their heads. Both shy and curious at the approach of a camera, this young girl tries to hide her face and peek out at the same time.
