In the course of a personal trip he undertook to the Maya area, Jorge Pérez de Lara contracted an incurable case of Maya fever and decided there and then to put his skills as an advertising and architectural photographer in the service of his passion. Along the way, he has been incredibly lucky to have met and traveled with world class teachers and friends who have got him deeply interested in the epigraphy and iconography of the ancient Maya. Aside from enjoying immensely working with the objects and buildings of this great civilization, he hopes his photographs may make a contribution to a better understanding of the ancient artists' voices, especially to those who can't have first-hand access to them.
