A Rare View of the Amish Community

I have such respect for the Amish and Mennonite communities. They are very devoted to their history and their faith. The Amish lifestyle is extremely severe because they do not use electricity for anything including air conditioning. No mechanical equipment of any kind is used in their farming. It is very rare that anyone can take photos of the Amish people. They believe the camera steals their souls. All of these shots were from a great distance with a telephoto lens. Hope you like this step back in time!

The Amish Way Of Gathering Corn.jpg

The horse pulls the corn sled through the rows of corn as the men pick the ears and toss them into the sled. It's slow and hot work.

    I believe it is hard but at the same time it is profitable, and the man will enjoy his hard working…the composition and the documentary shot as well as the rest of the album are great accomplished work of art.
