The bones of the dead are restless at night. They disturb your sleep and call for you in your dreams so that you wander restlessly in the night searching for those who disappeared. The bones need to be put to rest so that we may live in peace.Andrea Amperez Ciprian, San Andrés Sajcabajá, Guatemala. From the book Widows – Voices from Guatemala.
The portraits of these women from Guatemala were taken by Mike Kollöffel as part of his exhibition to document human rights called Widows | Voices of Guatemala. Originally from Germany, Mike is based in Copenhagen, Denmark. These photographs were displayed at Nyhavn.
