Photographer's Note

On the market of Chichicastenango I came along some stalls where nothing more then stones were sold. Strange.
After asking, it turns out the stones are blocks of chalk, which the locals use when making tortillas. The chalk is grinded and mixed with the grinded maize. Apparently the stones are harvested somewhere in the mountains, and locals have their preferences; one guy was continiously selling, while this older guy had no customers for quite a while...
