Rural Farming

The Danish photographer Anita Corpas has captured some strong photographs of rural farm life in Eastern Bolivia that shows not only the hardship of farm life but also the farmers’ zest for life. The pictures were taken during the photo workshop «On the Tracks of Che Guevara» in April this year. For more pictures of Anita, look up the presentation of her Bolivian work on Blue Hour Photo Workshops.

  1. It’s amazing how one picture can capture both the hardship and joys of a group of people. I’d been to a lot of rural areas in the Philippines and despite of life’s challenges, you can see genuine happiness that you don’t see for some that are materially blessed. It’s true that “simple life is a happier life.”

  2. That picture resonates the life we have back in my hometown. I’m lucky and happy that up to now, there’s not much of a change in the way farmers to things there. Seeing thing the way it were 25 years ago makes me really connected to the good old days when I help my family plow the fields. I hope it will stay way forever.

  3. That picture resonates the life we have back in my hometown. I’m lucky and happy that up to now, there’s not much of a change in the way farmers do things there. Seeing things the way it were 25 years ago makes me really connected to the good old days when I still help my family plow the fields. I hope it will stay way forever.

  4. Reminds me of the other day trying to get a pet donkey across a bridge then giving that up and trying to get it across the creek. Needless to say I ended up hiking my skirt up and crossing the creek several time to get it to cross. This time of the year a skirt is a must around my place as the mosquitoes are so bad and yet pants are too hot. Also I seem to always find myself in situations where I have to cross the creek, so a skirt at this time of the summer is perfect. The image certainly captured the frustration in the farmer.

  5. The work may be hard but it seems from the photographer’s view, these people truly find value, sense of peace and richness in their livihood & life. Great share.
