Don't call me Shirley

There probably isn’t a single person amongst us that hasn’t, at some point, dreamt up several untimely demises for our phones and the emails, calls and texts it can bother us with.

A far away island might even be our happy place, but it’s the rare few that make the break from connectivity and modern society to move back to the land and live off grid.

Photographer Antoine Bruy has been travelling and living with off grid families for three years, capturing the organic simplicity of their existence in quiet isolation. Away from the screeching horns of cities and the bright lights of motorways, these families have sacrificed all manner of modern comforts, but have gained autonomy and the sanctuary of nature at its purest.

This is my nana in her garden. I don’t know when it was taken but I am guessing the mid 1970’s when she was in her late 40’s. She loved being in her garden and she had the most love for animals that I have ever know a human being to have. She was always well dressed, well mannered and smiling. The best role model a girl can have.
