I was documenting the Guatemala Stove Project/Masons on a Mission. We put new wood stoves and stove pipes into a number of selected families in communities around Lake Atitlan. The stoves took half a day to complete and I was able to know the families and them to know us.
David Zimmerly Biography
David Zimmerly is a globetrotting photographer who takes his Nikon with him wherever he roams. In recent years David has traveled in India, Bhutan, Peru, the Galapagos, Guatemala, Havana, USA, Europe and Asia. He especially enjoys photographing the people he meets, young and old, capturing them on the street or at work or set against the natural and cultural landscapes of their homeland.
David’s keen interest in other cultures led him to a career as Arctic anthropologist with the National Museum of Man (now Canadian Museum of Civilization) in Ottawa, where he honed his photographic skills conducting fieldwork among the Inuit of Canada and the Yuit of Alaska. In 1986 David and his wife Helga Zimmerly left home to explore the world in their cruising sailboat, Erasmus, David’s camera never far from hand.
After the couple settled in Perth, Ontario a decade later, photography became David’s principal passion. He actively pursues use of the latest digital technology, currently with a Nikon D200 DSLR camera, shooting in RAW, and using his computer as a digital darkroom to develop stunning colour images of people and places. David has raised what was once a professional tool and personal pastime to the level of art.
