The Gomez Brito Family. La Pista. Guatemala. 2005.
Usually the family cannot afford eating anything other than vegetables and corn. They are breeding 12 chickens, but they will be sold to pay for clothing and daily necessities. During the day, the chickens stay outside, but when it gets dark they are put in a box that is placed under the bed of the eldest son. He takes care of the chickens.

The Gomez Brito family lives in a remote area of the mountains in Guatemala near the village of Nebaj. Nebaj is part of the Ixil-triangle–an area of three towns that maintains one of the strongest indigenous cultures in Guatemala. Even though natives make up the majority of the population in the country, they are still discriminated against in many ways. Most of them live in poverty and many work on farms earning a wage of 2-3 dollars a day.

In the late 1970s and 1980s, the Ixil-region was engulfed in a civil war, killing and displacing thousands of Ixil Mayans. During the war, the portrayed family lost their youngest child, who died of hunger and disease when hiding in the surrounding mountains. Today, in the very same mountains, the mother Juanita and the father Andrés live with their nine children. Unlike many other families from this area, they have succeeded in keeping the family together by working hard on their own pieces of land. From early morning to sunset, their daily routine consists of: collecting berries and other fruits, cultivating the land (which mainly consist of corn and beans) and breeding the animals.

Even though the chance of change in their life is most unlikely, all the children have different dreams for the future. Maria, 7, wants to continue school and get an education, Faustino, 18, is eager to find a way to enter the USA, while David, 6, claims that his wish is to take over the family’s land, when his father retires.

The Gomez Brito Family. La Pista. Guatemala. 2005. In April, the family burn back their cornfield to prepare for the next season. The corn harvest is particularly important to the family, because corn is part of every meal the family prepares. A bad corn season will be a catastrophe for the well-being of the family.

The Gomez Brito Family. La Pista. Guatemala. 2005. David takes a break from work. In spite of the fact that he’s only 6-years-old, David is always out of the house. Sometimes he doesn't return home before darkness falls, when his family is already sitting around the fireplace eating dinner.

La Pista. Guatemala. 2005. The Gomez-Brito family has a dog, his name is Diego. It follows 10-year-old Eliseo every morning when he walks the long way to the other side of the mountain to look after the horses. Eliseo doesn't like to walk the long way alone. He feels safer when the dog is with him. But Diego is old, so Eliseo often has to carry him the last way home.

Sabine has put on lipstick, high heels and a Polka Dot dress. It’ s the christening of her sister’s first baby. ”Peqqeraava? Am I beautiful?” Sabine asks. She lifts her skirt up revealing her starpanties and a pair of laddered tights. ”Iorunaraalid. You’re wonderful,” I reply,  grab hold of her and start to danne. I’ ve of ten watched Sabine dance at the village hall without wanting to join in. But now that we’ re alone in her uncle’s house I surrender to both the dance and Sabine. We dance across
tables, chairs and mattresses. Wilder and wilder. Through the open window we can hear the church bells chime but Sabine insists: ”Aamma, aamma, qilinnermud ilinniardiiatsiikkid.

From the book "Sabine". 2004.
