Adrew Waits: Boondock
Against the backdrop of the recent housing crisis and enduring economic fallout, I traveled the western United States seeking out individuals and the communities that blossom from this lifestyle. While technically off-the-grid, many are far from disconnected. For those fortunate enough to have access, the Internet plays a meaningful role in the fostering of community and the construction of a virtual safety net of information and support.
For some, the vehicle as home represents a willing rejection of American dogma, challenging the very meaning of “home” detached from ownership. For others, it’s a necessity brought on by hardship and an inability to attain stability. For many, the vehicle is a home away from home; a temporary reprieve from domesticity confined to a fixed geographic location. Rather than attempt to define an archetype, my hope is to embrace the diversity of this disparate community and present a compelling vision of existence outside the current narratives of domesticity dominating American life.
