Caption

Originally from the Alta Verapaz region, this Keq'chi Mayan family squats on an open property in Bellos Horizontes, a peri-urban community near San Benito in El Peten, new development in the northern region of Guatemala. At age 42, this mother is pregnant with her twelfth child, having previously lost three to disease and premature complications. While her husband is away tending to this corn fields for long periods of time, their 15 year old son shines shoes to augment the family income.
