Keeping Mayan Culture Alive

I’m currently down in Tulum on the Yucatan peninsula and I just finished a shoot for Sandos Caracol, one of a family of environmentally conscious eco-resorts in the Riviera Maya. They’ve invested great attention and resources into preserving authentic Mayan culture and developed presentations and performances around this exquisite group of people and their history. As the important date of 12/21/12 approaches, they are preparing for a multi-day event culminating in a huge celebration, and I’m down here photographing the performers to promote this occasion. What a great experience working with such dedicated professionals to preserve a culture often forgotten in the everyday noise of the modern world.
