Photographer James Rodríguez shares insights and experiences from his Fair Trade journey
Today, we are honored to share a Q&A with one of our very talented friends, photojournalist James Rodríguez. James is an independent U.S.-Mexican documentary photographer based in Guatemala since 2004.
Today's guest blog post is brought to us by Operation Groundswell, a travel organization that has generated a movement of socially conscious and globally aware activists, better known as 'backpacktivists.' It takes participants on a Fair Trade journey through Guatemala, where they deconstruct myths about Fair Trade and learn about the complexities of the coffee industry, all while working alongside local coffee farmers.
