I am very proud of my husband, Michael Plyler, for his eye and his craft in photography. A large body of his work, Maya of Guatemala Portraits, photographed over the last thirty years, will be added to the permanent collection of the National Museum of the American Indian at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. These beautiful black and white portraits will now have a permanent home and it is an honor to have Michael recognized in this way. Here are just two radiant and compelling examples from this body of work.
