Description
Photograph of a "'typical Indian' very curious about camera, but scared stiff when shutter clicked. His companion, a real cosmopolitan, said - 'Don't be such a chicken. No harm will come from the glass eye - it is for your photo.' Huehuetenango, Guatemala, 1/31/47" The young man in this photo wears a woven hat and a tattered shirt. He leans his left arm on a wood upright.
