Proyecto Los Abuelos De Atitlan
I have long wanted to to use my art to make a real difference in the lives of real people. With your help I can document the images, stories, and advice for future generations of the elders of San Pedro Atitlan in Guatemala.
The money raised will be used to reimburse the participants, hire a Mayan language translator, and to cover my local costs, but primarily to print the books in a local print shop. The books will all be donated to the local cultural center for sale to benefit local schools. Every dollar raised will remain in the community, and sale of the books will raise even more.
My name is David Scott Moyer. I am a fine art photographer and painter living in Tucson, Arizona.
I have been very fortunate to travel extensively in my work as a photographer, and have seen communities all over the world who are holding on to their traditions while being inexorably assimilated into the homogenous global culture. Please help me begin something with this one community that I can then take on the road to other peoples. They deserve to be remembered, and together we can make it a reality.
