Timm Rautert: No Photographing (Steidl Publishers, 2011)

 

 

In the seventies, the German photographer Timm Rautert came to North America to photograph the Amish community in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and the Hutterite community in Alberta, Canada.

 

 

 

 

 

“In 1974 the young Timm Rautert travelled to Pennsylvania to photograph those who normally don’t allow themselves to be photographed: the Amish, a group of Anabaptist Protestant communities. Four years later Rautert returned to America, this time to the Hutterites who live so stringently by the Ten Commandments and the bible’s restrictions on images that they have their identity cards issued without photographs. Both these two series were influential on Rautert’s later work and No Photographing brings them together for the first time.” Publisher’s Info
