“Honduras” is a photographic journey of the Central American country with more than 90 artistic and storytelling images depicting the people, lifestyle and landscapes. It includes cultural facts with each image, the story and the camera data used for capturing each particular image. The images in the book have been shown at the American and Honduras embassies and college campuses in both countries.
Wingler has been visiting Honduras for more than 10 years doing various mission projects in rural areas of Honduras. His love of the indigenous people and their unique culture has caused Wingler to pursue this book to show the beauty of this small nation and bring a greater awareness to the U.S. and worldwide.
Judith Ann Photography is at 4217 Marietta St., Powder Springs.
