Photographs of Rarely Seen Amish Communities

Since photography isn’t always welcome in Amish communities, photojournalist Michael Hanson’s series wasn’t easy to create, but his curiosity and the challenge it presented motivated him. First, Hanson attended the predominantly Amish Mount Hope Horse Auction in Ohio—where farming equipment and animals are sold. He then traveled to Unity, Maine where he met a man who had denounced the religion. The man was shunned by much of the community and a rift was birthed with his family. Both sets carry beauty and respect. Read and see more at the Washington Post.
