Las Montañas Te Mueven


In the summer of 2013, I traveled to northern Argentina and I began documenting a spiritual community that lived in and around an ashram. I knew very little about it before arriving, but I was interested in the practice of spirituality and religion. I lived with the community, interviewing in Spanish, and working alongside them. Their daily activities range from yoga, meditation, dancing to cooking, cleaning, and working the land to create a sustainable and minimal lifestyle. These photographs depict the humble community and their daily life.
