Antoine Bruy’s Scrublands project, a document of Europeans living off the grid looks to grow and go onwards, launching a crowd funding page on the newly established Fotofund platform. Four years in, Antoine’s series captures with incredible intimacy men and women of Europe turning their backs on the city and tackling a self sustained existence. If successfully funded Antoine plans to further the series in Americas Appalachian mountains, practically a petridish for every kind of interesting subculture and movement on the continent, a perfect Locale to rest his lens. Help a good bloke out with a plane ticket and keep Scrublands moving.

"Since 2010, I traveled throughout Europe to meet men and women who made the radical choice to live away from cities, willing to abandon their lifestyle based on performance, efficiency and consumption. The people and places depicted in my pictures display various fates which I think, should not only be seen at a political level, but more importantly as daily and immediate experiences.These are in some ways, spontaneous responses to the societies these men and women have left behind. Therefore their land is exploited but never submitted, time has lost its tight linearity to become a slow and deliberate pace. No more clock ticking but the ballet of days and nights, seasons and lunar cycles".
