Once in a while, we come across something so beautiful and amazing that it compels us to rethink our entire lives. This is one of those stories for us. Photographer Antoine Bruy traveled to and lived with off-grid families for a total of 3 years, during which time he captured some of the most amazing photos of off-grid families living in the rural countryside of Europe.
Bruy spent time in remote mountainous areas without any kind of fixed route in mind. He wanted to see and document the lives of people who willingly abandoned civilization in favor of a life that felt right to them. They’ve sacrificed many modern comforts to live their lives the way they want to, and it’s an inspiration.
In this photo series called Scrublands, Bruys documents the homes, neighborhoods, faces, and lives of the people he encountered by chance. We hope you enjoy.
