Man Quits Office Job to Photograph His New Life as a Shepherd in the Tuscan Hills

Amateur photographer Marco Sgarbi spent three years as a shepherd in the Tuscan Hills, after quitting his office job at an architecture firm. The village of Radicondoli has around 1,000 inhabitants, who continue the tradition of sheep farming. This is the place, where Sgarbi became a sheep farmer and documented his surroundings.

“It’s a world that is disappearing, one made of hard work but also great satisfaction, in an almost pristine environment” Sgarbi said. His images captured daily life of an average farmer, his connection with the animals and a beauty of the nature.

Sgarbi’s days as a sheep farmer are long gone. Now, he is busy traveling the world and documenting his journey.
