Rama: a portrait of the indigenous people of Eastern Nicaragua

Photography

Documentary photographer, Steve Molnar, captures daily ways of life in various communities of Nicaragua in this series, with a focus on the indigenous population of the Rama.

Molnar took his lens to the fishing community of the Bay Area, various festivals in California, boxing in the east bay, as well as landscapes in Death Valley. The series presented here is from seven trips to Nicaragua between 2014 and 2018.

The intimacy and deep engagement with the cultures, individuals and communities he photographs is illumined in the aesthetic quality and emotional tone of each photograph. Molnar prints his film himself with traditional gelatin silver prints. His work has been acquired by the Bancroft Library, University of California at Berkeley, as well as by private collectors.
