The Hutterites are a peaceful and industrious agrarian Anabaptist sect founded by Jacob Hutter (d. 1536). The live in large farming communities in Western Canada, maintaining traditional dress and customs, but embracing the most advanced farming techniques. The high-powered rocket-launch brought a substantial number of spectators each day from the nearby colony. They have a very positive relationship with the rocketry people - often finding errant missiles in their fields, and returning them the following year. They seemed mildly interested in my camerawork and not at all camera shy. I smiled and photographed them in all their dignity, without imposing upon them. I do hope they have Internet access and can see this most appreciative portfolio.
