Photos Reveal the Daily Lives of Women in Rural Mennonite Communities

Eunice Adorno

Mexican photographer Eunice Adorno captures women from rural Mennonite communities in her series Flower Woman. Despite being unable to speak German, Adorno manages a candid peek into their daily lives. The photos are surprisingly playful, their relationships centered around a close-knit sisterhood and religious tradition that feels both unhindered and buoyant. Flower Woman features few portraits and more the everyday spaces and crumpled keepsakes these women treasure. A compassionate chronicle of an often closed society, Adorno tells a tale of the bond between women, and the joys, fears and memories so familiar to us all.
