Synergy Village / 2017
More and more young people are going abroad. Because it's possible. Because they are following their need to temporarily lead other lives, coming loose from a routine. Often, high performance standards at home trigger a desire to taste from basic peasant life with no obligations but gardening, cooking, and sitting by the fire. It creates opportunity to really connect with people. It’s a magical period of time which you know only exists for a short while, before you want to get back home again.
This series was made during a ‘workaway’ I did living with a group of people in Feldbach, Switzerland, in summer of 2017.
