In 1994, Capp photographed a Hutterite community in eastern Washington State. Hutterites, like the Amish and Mennonites, are descended from sixteenth century Anabaptists, and retain many traditional agrarian ways. The book that resulted from this work, Hutterite: A World of Grace, explored this community's blend of old and new and was distinguished, as one reviewer put it, by its “tender and mysterious” square black-and-white photographs of young Hutterite women that evoke “the existence of an interior complexity within their beautifully plain exteriors.”
About the book:
An album of black-and-white photographs offers a rare look at the lives of the Hutterites, an agrarian religious community similar to the Mennonites and the Amish, focusing on the topics of memory, history, men and women, and community.
