During the week of March 19th, 2012 Project Exposure sent photographer Ben Rasmussen on assignment to document the landscape and people surrounding Lake Atitlan in the highlands region of central Guatemala.

Ben’s assignment was to create a body of work that would enlighten the public about the region and it's people. For this assignment, we worked in collaboration with Friendship Bridge, an international NGO based in Denver, to help facilitate the logistics on the ground in Guatemala. In return for their help, the images have been made available to them for educational purposes. All proceeds are strictly for covering the costs of an exhibit and no funds are earmarked for fundraising purposes.

Now that the assignment is complete, we want to exhibit the work September 14-28, 2012 in Denver Colorado at Vertigo Art Space and then take it on the road so that it can viewed firsthand by as many people as possible. The exhibit will feature large format prints as well as smaller pieces that will weave together a story of the region in a way that both informs and inspires the viewer. By doing this we hope to bridge the gap that commonly exists between cultures by using what we feel is one of the best means available, namely photography.

Project Exposure is a non profit organization dedicated to funding and promoting photography projects that address issues and solutions facing the world today. To learn more, visit us at www.projectexposure.org
