Dec. 21st, 2012: Chichicastenango is a chronicle of the activities
surrounding the end of the Mayan long count calendar in the Western
Highlands of Guatemala. Shot within a 24 hour period using a digital
camera (a landmark departure from Rhody’s invariable use of film),
this work drags the eyes of the viewer through the smoke plumes of
ancient ritual hilltops and crowded streets filled with fireworks
and trinket vendors. A day that the Western world naively
misconstrued as Doomsday is beautifully navigated to instead
portray the truly wide dynamics of mystery that lie behind
life on planet Earth.
