The Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS), a group that broke with the Mormons to continue practicing plural marriage, has thrived outside of the public spotlight until recently. For the February 2010 National Geographic, photographer Stephanie Sinclair spent time in their community to produce an amazingly insightful portrait of this defiant group of believers.
