It is an intimate and revealing collection of images of the women of Mexico's isolated Mennonite communities. The Mennonite communities emerged in Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries, after a schism in the Catholic Church. They were persecuted and were forced into flight. Some went to Mexico at the start of the 20th century, and there they consolidated their agricultural communities, where they conserved their traditions, their religious practice, and their native German. Photographer Eunice Adorno was able to gain access to these isolated groups, living among them and documenting their customs. Intrigued by the Mennonite women she met, Adorno made their inner world and lives the focus of her work, following them through their daily rituals as they would elaborately braid and coil their hair, play with their children, and work around the home.
