“Tozzer Library at Harvard is delighted to be able to make the photographs in A Mirror to Our World available for research and study by students, faculty and scholars from around the world who come to Cambridge to use our collection. Their addition builds on our 140-year history of supporting the scholarly investigation of Maya peoples both past and present.”

Limited-Edition Portfolio

A Mirror to Our World, Un espejo a nuestra mundo

This portfolio celebrates the achievements of the Maya photographers who have participated in CPP programs and activities. The images offer a rare glimpse into the varied lives of CPP photographers and their unique vision and worldview.

A Mirror to Our World is limited to an edition of 100 copies, and features twelve archival digital inkjet prints made on Hahnemuhle William Turner 190g 100% cotton rag paper. Each print measures approximately 5x7 inches, in a 8x10-inch matte. All prints are numbered and signed by the photographer, and the entire portfolio, including the box, accompanying text, and multilingual list of works, is presented in a hand-woven textile slipcase made in Chiapas. The portfolio price began at US $1,200. (plus shipping). Please request current price. Individual signed artists proofs are available for purchase.

Proceeds from the sale of the portfolios will help CPP continue to fund instruction, community-based photo projects and exhibitions of the work of the Maya photographers.

The portfolio is intended for collectors of fine art photography, as well as individuals interested in expressions of indigenous and Maya life and culture, anthropology and education. A select number of the portfolios currently reside in private, museum, and university collections, including Princeton, Harvard and Stanford Universities and the Library of Congress.
