Mennonites have always been a source of wonder for modern individuals, if only for their lack of connectivity to the Internet, and Jordi Ruiz Cirera has captured their lifestyle to further this wonderment. Jordi Ruiz Cirera specifically concentrates on the communities in Bolivia. Many Mennonites who originally immigrated from Bolivia to other countries including Mexico and Canada had to find their way back due to a nonacceptance of their way of life.

Yet Jordi Ruiz Cirera shows that even in Bolivia, their lifestyle is being threatened. As cities expand, Mennonite youth are becoming more and more exposed to alcohol, music, cars and more. The Spanish documentary photographer nevertheless captures what a stalwart faith these individuals have.
