An old-order Mennonite community was established in 1976 by several families who relocated from Pennsylvania to the small town of Liberty in Casey County, Kentucky. The community allowed me to spend several days there in June of 1980 photographing them with the only stipulation that I couldn't "pose" any photos. They worked their fields and gardens, did other chores. The whole community went to church on Sunday using an old farmhouse as their place of worship. ..L to R: Amos Kilmer, Aaron Burkholder, Isaac Kulp Sr. (partially hidden), Amos Burkholder, Jacob Oberholtzer, Phares Shirk (coming down steps), Isaac Kulp Jr. with son Michael. .Small boys L to R: Samuel Kilmer, Joel Brubaker, Dana Zimmerman.
