Villagers / portraits

Portraits of the residents of Wiepersdorf, photography by Martin Bennett

“Villagers” is portrait of the inhabitants of a small village one and a half hours outside of Berlin.

To accompany the landscape photography that I shot on a previous trip to Wiepersdorf, I returned to photograph the people that live in this perfect little rural village nestled at the foot of ‘Schloss Wiepersdorf’. The aim being to portrait the people in a very natural way against the colourful textured backdrop of the landscape in which they live and work.

This is an on going project that I hope to contribute to over the coming months.

I like the contrast between the battered gate and the souped up car. German Opel enthusiasts: is that a Kadett or a Rekord?

I’m no Opel expert but I believe its an Opel Ascona. Anyway nice motor!
