Photos of Faustino's Patagonian Retreat

They'll make you consider becoming a hermit too.

VICE recently took a trip to Chilean Patagonia to document the life of Faustino Barrientos, an 81-year-old hermit whose pastoral life is slowly being eroded by The Man.

On the plus side, he still lives in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Take a look at these photos Peter Sutherland took while hanging out with Faustino if you don't believe us.

And when you're done with that, why not enjoy the film, Far Out: Faustino's Patagonian Retreat?
