The technical definition of a photograph is: An image, especially a positive print, recorded by a camera. Sounds simple enough. Obviously the definition falls very short of what a photograph actually is. After reviewing the hundreds of photographs we received for this annual photo issue, we were astounded once again at the range of emotions and the breathtaking vistas that can be captured by the camera.

Of course, it matters who’s operating the camera, and we could not be more thankful to the talented photographers who contributed to this “exhibition” of Guatemalan art. Many are represented throughout these pages, from the true professionals to the weekend enthusiasts. Unfortunately, we could not fit them all in, and some will appear in future issues.
Some of these photographs are thought-provoking, some are artful, some depict the grandeur of mother nature, some are poignant and some—like the one below of our dog—are simply amusing.
We hope you enjoy these images, and we wish you all the best in this new year.
—John & Terry Kovick Biskovich
