About Roderico Yool  Díaz:
For more than 15 years, Roderico has worked as an independent photojournalist and has documented the struggle of affected communities and survivors to overcome the aftermath of war and genocide in Guatemala and their relationship with migration to the United States. Roderico Yool Díaz (1975, Chimaltenango, Guatemala), was born on a coffee plantation owned by the Dutch in the 1970s, a relic of colonialism in Guatemala where Indigenous people were forced to labor on European-owned plantations.
