The Mountain Farmer

The mountain farmer - the last of their kind.” A rare glimpse inside the hidden and fast ending world of an old traditional way of life and of a dying culture. The faces of these mountain people tell their stories. They are simple, honest people with some bitterness and a fighting spirit. They capture an almost forgotten way of life in a world that is fast-paced and ever changing, and with that change an era is coming to an end as the children of these farmers have mostly chosen a different path. (All portraits have been made with natural light at their home.)
