Weekly Photo Challenge: Community

The missing community of Guatemala.

Posters of people ‘disappeared’ by the government during Guatemala’s 36 year civil war line the streets of Guatemala City. The people may be missing but this invisible community still exerts a strong influence on the conscience of the country.

The rediscover of forgotten police archives in zone 6 of the city several years ago has led to the painstaking archiving of hundreds of thousands of documents which, it is hoped, will shed light on what happened to this community of ‘disappeared’ and lead to further reconciliation and recovery in Guatemala.
