Teaching Geography: Workshop 2

Latin America

Guatemala Slide Show

These photographs were taken by famed landscape and science photographer Eadweard Muybridge during his visit to Guatemala in 1876. They provide a look at life much as it appeared in colonial times and reflect the use of Maya Indian labor on nineteenth-century coffee plantations. There are seventeen slides. As you move through the show, try to answer the questions asked in the text. Also ask yourself: How have things changed? How have they stayed the same?
