The Mennonites can't use Emojis on their new iPhone, share pictures of their food on Instagram or listen to Wiz Khalifa on Spotify. The conservative religious sect, who share ties with the Amish, reject technology in order to live a simpler life outlined by The Bible.

Lukily their aversion to technology doesn't extend to cameras. Spanish documentary photographer Jordi Ruiz Cirera visited a Mennonite community in Bolivia, a place with no cars (although there are a couple of wild things who do own them in Mexico and Canada) and a whole lot of farmers.

What do you think is worse– not being able to use Wikipedia, or not having to see all those selfies on Facebook?
