2011 grant back on track after catastrophic weather hits region. January 26, 2012
We’re happy to announce that the project with Friendship Bridge is back on schedule after a delay due to catastrophic weather conditions forced us to postpone the shoot in November. Now that the region and Friendship Bridge has had a chance to recover from the series of storms that made roads impassable and travel nearly impossible, we’re preparing for the shoot this March.
Photographer Ben Rasmussen, who was recently featured in a Photo District News article highlighting his personal work, will be traveling with Friendship Bridge’s Marketing and Communications Manager, Julie Malmberg throughout the western highlands, lowlands and peri-urban regions of Guatemala with the goal of telling the stories of the people and the environment they inhabit.
We plan to post updates as we lead up to the assignment as well updates while on assignment. The goal is to give followers a sense of what a shoot like this entails both logistically and creatively.
