I recently revisited some images I had taken in a remote area of Romania in May 2014, which happened to coincide with haymaking season.
I was in the village of Hoteni, in Maramures, one of the most remote areas of Europe, where villagers preserve a way of life that most cast off centuries ago.
Romanian villagers still use horse-drawn carts and work the land together. Hay is made by hand, cut with scythes, turned while using homemade wooden pitchforks and draped over wooden railing to dry.
Hay can be ruined easily if it gets too wet, and these farmers must make haste while the weather is good.
