Abigail George


This photo essay attempts to untangle and explore the complex relationships between electoral politics, economic development, multiculturalism, gender and race in Sumpango, Guatemala. Drawing on several months of fieldwork from 2017-2019, George analyses the dynamics of shifting invocations of gender and indigeneity through their manifestations in the everyday, and reflects on the texturizing and reflexive potential of visual mediums in anthropology.
