Cell-Phone Images by Henry


Our last Amish manufacturer (2005-2008) did not have a call-box so we provided them with a cell phone that they kept charged at a neighbors house. I just found these images that Henry, the eldest son, took sometime in 2007-2008 on that very cell phone. It was a bit of surprise considering they are not supposed to have their photos taken. We certainly didn't photograph them when we were with them. But, since Henry took these of himself, I thought I would share them. I think the top three illustrate his funny side but all seem to show the huge pressures that are placed onto his shoulders. Henry was 18 at the time and the oldest of 11 kids. Sadly, in August of this year, they lost their father, Ben to Lymphoma.

Found your site via Selectism.com.

This post is particularly moving. Do you still employ this family for your production? You noted that you used them from 2005-2008.

I would also be interested to know how you hooked up with the Amish folks business-wise.

Thanks for posting.
