Some of Hayman's earliest photograph­ic work took place shortly after the 1976 earthquake in Guatemala, where he went to aid the U.N.'S disaster relief efforts. While there, he fell in love with the environmen­t and the people who lived there, a trait he would continue throughout all his future travels. Through an unabashedl­y humanist lens, these photograph­s depict a time and a place deeply rooted in its historical moment and universal in their exploratio­n of what constitute­s beauty, life, and community.
