Witnesses to Genocide: The Living, the Dead, and the Photographers

I get a lot of IMs. And lately a number of them come from a Spanish photographer named Ofelia de Pablo—“Hi Lauren” will pop up a few mornings a week. I look forward to these messages since I am just getting to know de Pablo, who I met (virtually) through my research for Women Under Siege. A couple months ago, I found myself repeatedly clicking to stare at a couple of photos of wizened Guatemalan women in The Guardian by de Pablo and her photo partner, Javier Zurita. After looking up more of their work and wanting to know more about these two photojournalists, I contacted de Pablo.
