Photographer's Note

This is Rosa and her husband. SHe runs a dining stall in the San Cristobal de las Casas marketplace. Her food was delicious, and her daughters are the sweetest girls. THey were fascinated by the camera, and ran around taking pictures of us with it. I finally convinced ROsa to let me take her picture, but she insisted that we wait for her husband, and that the fake flowers had to be in the shot. And she didn't want the girls in the shot. In short, she wanted everything to be the way she wanted it to be. Including her "empleada" in the background. That's what she called the girl she hired to wash dishes and cook (a big symbol of her success).
I gave them a bunch of pictures from that day, but she only wanted to keep this one. The rest she gave away to her daughters.
A very tough woman.
