I'm not sure how this will go down.
These are young Hutterite girls relaxing with a cold beer before an afternoon of hot, dusty, dirty work at a cattle branding.
Even though they are brought up in a strict religious community these girls had enough attitude to pull off a kind of (to my mind anyway) 60's Italian chic.
Even with hand knit socks.
I hope you like it, I do.

Make it a great weekend.

Really good Nev. I thought they were hutterites from the thumbnail then opened it saw the leopard skin and the beer and the sunglasses and throught cannot be. The world is always more complex and more full of little freedoms under the rules than we care to believe most of the time. Excellent.

Your pictures that intrigue me most Nev are never the ones that get lots of attention. Either I'm a jinx or it says a lot about my tastes

The leopard skin print is certainly from different everything I've seen in these uploads previously. Nonconformity within the rules. But there's plenty more here, the sunglasses and the nonchalant angles of some of the scarves (hints of Sophia Loren!)
I like the angle, it makes them circle round in conversation.

Neville, your image made it easy for me to award my UA. I once spent time in Canada, and among the people that I served in my area was both Hutterite and Mennonite communities. Strangely, i was drafted into the Mennonite slow-pitch team when the 4H tourney's happened in town. However, my award is because of the splendid photo, and not because of my sentimental journey.

Many thanks Andre, for your award and your kind words. I tried slow-pitch a few weeks ago. He swings. He misses. Oh dear, he's fallen over now.........

gotta love the shades and that leopard print dress. it's basically the combination of the head scarf and the shades that gives this a touch of 60s italian class. one of my faves of your hutterite series

One of the best studies in photographical anthropology I've seen. Pure Magnum agency stuff Nev; narrative photography if ever the genre existed. Have my award for narrative photography.
