About this Item

Out of Print, We have only 1 copy remaining Description: 143 p. : ill. Subjects: Bruderhof Communities --Documentary photography --Hutterian Brethren, North America --Pictorial works --Individual photographers --Photoessays and documentaries --Photojournalism --Portraits. Summary: Like the Mennonites and the Amish, the Hutterites are farmers -- and very successful ones. All three religious communities have resisted modernity in religion, social affairs, and family life, but the Hutterites use state-of-the-art equipment and progressive methods of agriculture. Their self-imposed isolation and predominantly self-sufficient lifestyle have enabled them to preserve their traditional customs. Photographs of them are rare, and non-Hutterites are considered "outsiders". Kristin Capp's photos deal primarily with themes of memory, history, gender, and role. She has focused upon objects and motifs in states of transition, on the themes of new and old. Unconcerned with "cataloging", she has devoted herself rather to refining and intensifying her approach to these subjects. Bookseller Inventory # 001457

About this title


An album of black-and-white photographs offers a rare look at the lives of the Hutterites, an agrarian religious community similar to the Mennonites and the Amish, focusing on the topics of memory, history, men and women, and community.


...the tender and mysterious quality of Capp's square black-and-white portraits of young Hutterite women ... suggests the existence of an interior complexity within their beautifully plain exteriors. -- The New York Times Book Review, Andy Grundberg

[P]hotographer Kristin Capp has managed a near miracle in her creation of this deeply affecting book of black and white photographs: she convinced the Hutterite, who do not believe in the making of images, to allow her to photograph them. A work of consummate skill and great beauty. -- Salem [Oregon] Statesman-Journal, 12/8/98
