Untitled. From the series 'Myth of Utopia'
My beloved and I hitchhiked through both Europe without any fixed destination or route in mind. Along the way we met several individuals who had willingly abandoned their previous lives in exchange for the retreat into the deep wilderness. These people turned their backs on modern civilisation and its emphasis on consumerism and productivity for greater autonomy and freedom, choosing instead the slower, if inconvenient, life that paces itself with nature.
