  • Date: 2015
  • About the series: Since 2010, I have travelled throughout Europe to meet men and women who made the radical choice to live away from cities. Without a fixed route and led by chance encounters; my journey simulated the quest of the families that I met. Unstable structures, recycled materials and the application of a multiplicity of agricultural theories bring out the plurality of human trajectories, all aimed at gaining greater energy, food, economic and social autonomy. In some ways, these are spontaneous responsesto the societies these men and women have left behind. Their land is exploited, but never left fallow. Time moves at a slow and deliberate pace.
