This series is SO good.

The project Menonos depicts the life and the inner struggles lived in the Mennonite communities in Eastern Bolivia. Mennonites are Christian Anabaptis who arrived during the fifties from Canada, Mexico or Belize, hoping here they’d be able to preserve their lifestyle. Nowadays they live on the same way their ancestors did; with no cars, telephones, electricity or modern utilities. However, the pressure of the surrounding society is creating difficulties for them to survive.

Tengo una fascinación por los menonitas desde hace unos años. Se me hace una sub cultura, credo y filosofía MUY interesante. Sus atuendos, la manera en que caminan y la mirada tan serena que tienen son como peldaños a otro mundo, en el que el resto de la sociedad es ajena a su comunidad.
