Linda Forsell is the creator behind a new series of photographs titled Children Having Children, a look at the harsh reality that many girls in Guatemala face.
What shocked the Swedish photographer the most was the "normalization of incest" that happens in many parts of the country.
According to the photojournalist, there are many people who aren't aware of this situation in Guatemala, so she hopes her project will begin a conversation.
"They are in a prison without walls where they lack opportunities, have full responsibility for a baby, and most importantly a future, which is in the hands of their parents or husband," Forsell said. "Thus dreams become limited or non-existent."
The girls who have received help and support from their families have achieved tremendous progress in the two years that Forsell has worked with them, she said.
