Maryknoll is hosting a photography exhibit by one of their missionary’s, Brother Martin Shea.
Shea spent several years in Guatemala, in the 1980s, during the height of that country’s civil war. He followed refugees as they fled to Mexico, many of them women and children, photographing them, writing poems and narratives about the experience.
His work, “Save the Kids, Save their Stories,” will be shown at Maryknoll headquarters in Ossining through Feb. 9.
With so many Guatemalans now populating Westchester County, it is worth checking out the exhibit to learn more about that country’s history and its people.
