Betty Bernice Faust (possibly b. 1942) researches rural communities of Mayan heritage and their interaction with the biophysical environment. She obtained a master's degree in public administration (1982) and PhD in anthropology (1988) from Syracuse University and spent fifteen years as a senior researcher in the Human Ecology Department of the Mexican government's federal Center for Research and Advanced Studies (CINVESTAV-IPN). The photographs in this collection document two research projects, which were funded by the Shell International Foundation of Dissertation Research in Developing Countries (1985-1986), the Werner-Gren Foundation (1992-1993), and CINESTAV.
