Ukrainian Carpathians. Mountain Valley Vorozheska. 2015.

Every year in May the shepherds go up to the mountains with sheep. There they spend up to 5 months cut off from civilization.

The work lasts from 5 am to midnight seven days a week. The shepherds graze sheep every day passing up to 20km. Twice a day they milk sheep and cook cheese. Sleep at night is not always possible, because they have to protect the herd from wolves. They keep fire at three shelters around the herd during the night.

Bonfire is most important thing in the valley. All the food and cheese prepares on it. No electricity and poor mobile phone coverage. Only voices from the old radio and reed pipe entertain shepherds.
