The systematic repression of indigenous peoples of Guatemala led to a bloody armed conflict from 1960 to 1996 that left behind more than 200,000 dead, most of whom were Maya. In an environment of fear and threats, the photographer Miquel Dewever-Plana documented the exhumation process and gathered testimonies of numerous victims. Years later, he returns to the Mayan communities to bring his book to those who had shared their stories.
