Photographer #247: Luis González Palma

Luis González Palma, 1957, Guatemala, is an artist who works and lives in Córdoba, Argentina. In his impressive and extensive body of work we see him using various disciplines to achieve his end results. He uses fabrics and textiles, manipulates images, sometimes hand-painted and plays with our perception. Originally trained as an architect and cinematographer, he has exhibited his photographic work since 1989. Palma got international recognition with his first series depicting haunting images of the Maya Indians showing the pain and sadness of the Mayan people who have suffered from a violent and racist regime since the early 16th century. His work is held in numerous private and public collections around the world. The following images come from the series Escenas 2011 and La Luz de la Mente.
